Circle of Parents PDF Print E-mail

Circle_of_ParentsDo you feel frustrated, overwhelmed or alone in your parenting? Or do you just need to talk? We all know parenting can be hard.

Kids depend on us, and sometimes it seems like none of us could possibly have enough time, strength or wisdom to give them everything they need.  But help IS available- help from other parents who might have a good idea of what you're going through.  They'll listen to you, talk about it, and offer their own ideas and support.

Circle of Parents provides a friendly, supportive environment led by parents and other caregivers. It's a place where anyone in a parenting role can openly discuss the successes and challenges of raising children. Where they can find and share support.
