You’ll be able to share experiences, gain feedback and support, and connect with others in the on-line conversation.

Purposeful Parenting

Grieving and Growing: Helping Children of All Ages Cope with Change

Understand and respond to children of all ages experiencing loss from life-changing circumstances.  Loss and grief related to the COVID -19 crisis, schools closing, sports, music and event cancellations, perhaps the illness of a family member, or social distancing from grandparents, peers or playmates have all impacted the lives of our children. Let’s talk about how we can support them and mindfully manage the uncertainty.

Thursday, April 30, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
