During these 4 session virtual workshops, we use Active Parenting curriculum to introduce you to tools that may help you to raise responsible, confident children, and to navigate through issues that many parents struggle with.
Each workshop focuses on a different age range, allowing you to customize your experience to fit the ages of your children. You are welcome to participate in more than one workshop.
Pre-Registration is required for each workshop. The cost of a 4 session workshop is $30. Once payment has been received, you will receive a book and workbook in the mail. Upon completion of all 4 sessions, you will receive a $25 gift card. Parents associated with the Head Start program attend for free (but do not receive a gift card)
