Parent Recharge meets every Thursday morning and alternates between focused discussions around a specific topic and unstructured conversation with other parents and caregivers. Join us to learn, laugh, ask questions, and enjoy a morning out while your children socialize in our playroom. Coming up:

July 4: No group

July 18: Open discussion. Relax and recharge.

July 11: Progress, not Perfection. Shaming, inconsistency and negativity are not good for our kids, and yet we all fall into these patterns at times. It is never too late to become the parent you want to be. This discussion is based on the work of author and educator Janet Lansbury. Led by Patrice Baker.  Sign up

July 25: The Power of Positivity. Do you need help finding more happiness and joy in parenting — and in life? Learn strategies (scientifically proven) for developing a more positive outlook… and explore ideas for encouraging kids to do the same. Based on the findings of researcher and author Shawn Achor. Led by Patrice Baker. Sign up

August 1, 15 and 29: Open discussion. Relax and recharge.

August 8 & 22: Parenting Bravely. Dr. Brené Brown is a professor and researcher who has a lot to teach us about courage, shame, vulnerability and empathy. In this two-part class, we will listen to and discuss her Ted Talks and interviews, and walk away with ideas and inspiration for “parenting bravely.” Led by Patrice Baker. Sign up
