Post Pandemic Parenting

This is your opportunity to dare to imagine life in a post-pandemic world for yourself, your family, and your community. What will our lives be like once we begin to emerge from the pandemic? How can we support our children in preparing for that post-pandemic world? And how can we begin to process everything that our families and our communities have  experienced during this strange and uncertain time? In this thought-provoking presentation, you’ll be encouraged to reflect on your family’s pandemic experiences: to acknowledge all the learning and growth that you have witnessed in yourself and your children over the past two years. You’ll also have an opportunity to consider your hopes and dreams for your family moving forward, and to zero in on parenting strategies that can help you to achieve your big-picture parenting goals
