“Parenting Through the Messiness of Family Life” 
Join us for an opportunity to connect with other Connect Parents through this engaging discussion lead by Parenting Mentor, Julie Freedman Smith. 

We hear all the time that our kids need to use resilience, but how can they bounce back into shape when things get tough if they weren’t in strong mental shape to begin with? Life might feel messy but with focus, we can support our kids in developing emotional and mental strength, finding courage, and building independence.

This session will provide an opportunity for group discussions, open Q&A, and tips for you to get clear on how to help your child through the messy emotional times while they gradually build courage and strength to take on new challenges.
Thursday, Nov 30: 5:15pm (dinner), 6:15pm (movie & program begins)
Students have been voting on their choice of movies and we’ll announce the film next week!

Dinner & Snacks can be preordered (limited cash sales for snacks will be offered) in advance. Online sales will be open soon!

We look forward to seeing you there!



Have a wonderful week, Connect!
