July

Parenting Journey, Tuesdays (July), 10am-1pm

Wayside Blackstone Valley, 10 Asylum St., Milford, MA 01757

What is the Parenting Journey? Learn to identify your strengths as individuals and as parents. Be valued and learn to value yourself, with self-awareness. Focus on your life, past and present, with self-awareness. Learn about family and child development. Practice specific behavior-related techniques. Unlike traditional parenting programs, which focus solely on teaching parents and caregivers about child development and disciplinary techniques, the Parenting Journey helps you explore the roots of your parenting practices. 

This group will meet for 12 weeks. A continental breakfast will be shared together with the group members and facilitators. This group is FREE for parents. 

July schedule: 7/18 and 7/25
