co-parenting

Divorce or the end of a relationship is not the end of a relationship with your child or with your child's other parent. A negative relationship with your co-parent can cause your child to feel emotional and psychological distress. In this group, we work to redefine the relationship with your co-parent for the sake of the children involved.

Mondays, November 26, December 3, 10 from 5:30-7:00 pm

Website - Confident Child.jpg

raising confident, competent children

Children are more likely to be confident, succeed at school, and get on well with others when they develop certain life skills. These life skills include being respectful and considerate, communicating well with others, thinking positively and having a healthy self-esteem, being a good problem solver, and becoming independent and able to do things themselves.
