A Week of Sharing Wisdom

February 16-25, 2018

Inviting parents* to talk with other parents about parenting.


What is your group interested in talking about? Feel free to use this list or come up with your own. Visit this page to see a format with 5 rounds of questions. You can also download these Topics as a printable pdf.

  2. share successes, concerns, issues
  3. discuss strategies and solutions; or any questions you have too!
