Parent Support

In spite of the six thousand manuals on child raising in the bookstores, child raising is still a dark continent and no one really knows anything. You just need a lot of love and luck - and, of course, courage. ~Bill Cosby, Fatherhood, 1986
Parenting Support Group for the middle and high school years

A safe , encouraging environment where parents share their fears and frustrations,  differentiate their concerns and their children’s, understand their triggers, and  develop new communication patterns.

This group, limited to eight, will provide invaluable opportunities for parents to both receive support and give support to other parents who face similar parenting challenges.

This group will help reduce parental stress, feelings of isolation and increase self-efficacy and competencies.

The group will have a maximum of eight members, small enough to foster comradeship, intimacy, confidentiality, and a feeling of safety but large enough to stimulate the sharing of diverse experiences.
The fee structure is based on an eight-week commitment, needed to foster safe and open discussions.
