June 02 Parenting Under Pressure (series)

"Parenting under pressure" is something parents do on a constant basis.

As a way to support the demands of this type of pressure, the Faculty Staff Help Center is offering a “drop-in” monthly discussion group for parents to talk about these demands, share parenting tips and resources, and receive support for trying to be the best parents we can be. 

This group is an extension of the four week parenting group recently done for parents of 5-8 year olds, so focus will be on that age group.  However, it can be an option for parents of children up to age 12.

Dates:  Tuesdays, March 31st, April 28th and June 2nd, 2015
Time:  12 p.m.–1 p.m. (Feel free to bring your lunch)
Location:  Faculty Staff Help Center, Keck Science Building, 380 Roth Way (View campus map»)
Facilitators: Mary Foston-English, MFT and Sandra Mikhail, MA Intern
