Ahoy, Parents! introducing a concept that is new for most parents — the invitation to join a group of parents for one hour a week, for as long as you are parenting! (or however long you wish). There is a live session each week.

Missed the live session? Watch the replay on Zoom! The replay also allows both parents, or even grandparents to attend later. Invite your sister or your good friend to join the group and discuss sessions together!

A Note from Dottie: "Throughout my career working with children and families, I have had this idea of a weekly check-in on parenting. While raising our own children (who are now raising theirs), my husband and I sometimes felt challenged and perplexed as our children passed through the changes that come as children grow up. What to do? Why? Are we being consistent? Should we be consistent? Is this part of normal development? How do children know their parents’ triggers? What was I like at that age? Can I self-reflect? Which book should I read to help me understand what is happening? Our intention is to invite parents to dedicate just one hour a week to discuss a variety of parenting topics, often with a brief handout. We encourage parents to develop their own parenting style based on information, discussion and most importantly on their experience with their own children. Join for ten sessions at a time for as long as you like! If you miss a session, you or your partner can watch it later on Zoom.

Parenting discussions focus on understanding the emotional growth and development that happens at each age — what is normal development and when to be concerned. All parents, grandparents, therapists, teachers, caregivers are welcome to join!"

COST: $180 for 10 sessions. If you are not satisfied after attending your first group session, we will give you a full refund of your payment. We ask that you let us know within 24 hours after the session. One or both parents, grandparents, etc., are also welcome to attend from the same site, or for the replay.
