North Shore Moms & Dads...Join me at The Living Room for an weekly support series...learn to Parent From The Heart! 
Tuesdays 10:30-11:30am this Fall
Please call to reserve your seat in advance at (917) 863-7865.

Parenting is much like cultivating a garden. We must first create a healthy, fertile foundation in which to plant our seeds. Then we embark on a life-long journey of nurturing our seeds a little each day with just the right dose of love and affection, guidance and support, limits and life lessons as we watch them grow and mature naturally and happily.

Please join me to gain support and discuss a wide variety of topics relevant to everyday parent life. All are welcome to share personal concerns and stories or simply listen and learn. I'll be happy to offer positive feedback, creative insights and practical strategies to promote healthy communication, discipline and peaceful ways to handle conflict within families.

This group is suggested for expecting and new parents, as well as those moms and dads raising toddlers, twins or teens. Grandparents are welcome too! Come when you can.
