Parent Education Workshops

Where groups of parents get information, and learn and practice new skills to help them in their daily life with their children. And what is our ultimate goal as a parent? To help our kids learn, through the ages and stages of development, how to become fully self-sufficient capable adults in the larger world. We may not need formal training to help them do this, but some support along the way can make the journey that much easier.
