A Unique Resource for Local Parents
The Parent Center works in partnership with our local community of parents to provide services that enhance knowledge and awareness on subjects of interest, strengthen the bonds of community and support and professional assessment and intervention for families in need.
Community Wide Parent Talks
Here is a partial list of the curated discussions we have presented:
Parenting With Attitude: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Parenting
Top Ten Things To Love About Your Adolescent’s Brain
Letting Them Go To Let Them Grow
Good Enough Kids
Parenting Your Anxious Child
Developing Your Family’s Own Drug and Alcohol Policy
Parenting In the Digital Age
Parenting Around Body Image
Birds, Bees, and Brave Conversations
Parenting and self-esteem
We present these talks at The Hommocks and our local elementary schools. We are also available to tailor these talks for evening events in your home. Contact us for more information.
Build Your Own Group (BYOG)
The Parent Center runs monthly parent support groups that are designed around the interests and needs of the parents in each group. We encourage parents to gather together a group of their friends, or the parents of their children’s friends, to meet monthly with a professional leader. These groups provide a safe place to have real conversations, obtain useful information, and learn concrete tools to use when you get home. Current and past groups have elected to remain nonspecific while others have chosen to narrow their focus to such areas as mindful parenting, Hispanic parents, and separated/divorced parents.
Want to start a group? Gather together some friends and contact us.
Need some time to talk about something privately? We can do that. We invite you to come in for 1 to 3 session to talk about what’s going on in your home and offer psychoeducation, tips and perspective.
Need a little parenting advice? Contact us.
