Reflective Parent Support Group

A nonjudgmental space for reflecting and getting support.

Welcome Note:

Hi Everyone! I am so excited that we now have this Reflective Parenting Support group! As I have started my journey through parenthood, I have found how helpful and constructive community support can be. When my son began to attend Our Neighborhood Child Development Center, I learned that there was way more to parenting than I had expected. I also learned a lot about the kind of parent I want to be and realized that my previous support systems did not support my parenting goals as much as I needed. I saw the need for a community group to support myself and other parents and caregivers interested in reflective parenting. Luckily, I was able to reach out to Jenn from Our Neighborhood and she was happy to undertake this project with me. Thus this reflective parenting group has begun!

I hope that this group becomes a safe place for you work through any parenting challenges you may have, and provides you with additional tools and resources that assist you in meeting your parenting goals.
