  • Adolescent brain development
  • Boundaries, and turning over responsibility as appropriate
  • Self-care – taking back your life

Currently there is no charge to participate in our parenting programs however we are asking for donations.  A suggested donation of $35.00 can be made here . We ask that when you make your donation to please indicate in the message section that it is for a parenting program. 

Parents will need access private meeting space, and a computer, tablet, or cell phone with the ability to  download Zoom software. We will send manuals via PDF files. 


We hope to be adding additional programs and workshops as time progresses.  We are asking that parents provide us with an email address and a phone number to facilitate the registration process. 

Thank you for your time, effort, and commitment to families!
