Parents in Secure Beginnings classes often feel a sense of relief when joining in the company of other adults. The simple truth is: we are not meant to parent alone. In this time of social distancing, let’s take a deep collective breath together.
Singing, signing, moving, and dancing together bring pleasure, connection, and learning. Songs can also be used to mark important transitions in your child’s day such as hellos and good-byes, waiting, missing, wishing, and sleeping time. Drop in as you can, or attend them all.
Parenting through quarantine is proving to be demanding unlike any other time. Parents may feel intense overwhelm, frustration and anger, and shame or guilt if not parenting the way they’d hoped. Your feelings are important and not wrong. Join Parent Consultant Carol Castanon for this one hour workshop.
“Each meeting with Carol and the other caregivers
was uplifting and boosted my confidence as a parent.
My experiences were validated and I now feel
better equipped to handle the unique stress of these times.”
