April 12, 2021 8:30 PM to 9:45 PM
Parenting can be joyful, stressful, uplifting, and frustrating – all in one day (hour?!).
The journey to, through, and beyond a special needs diagnosis can make the parenting experience all the more intense. Especially during the pandemic! Join an intimate circle of fellow travelers for sharing, listening, and supporting each other with practical advice.
For parents and caregivers of children approximately ages 2*-8 with any diagnosis. Due to sensitive sharing between the participants, this group is not appropriate for observers.
Facilitated by Rabbi Laurie Matzkin, JCC Mindful Jewish Journeys Educator. The group is compassion-based and anyone interested in meeting others sharing the journey of parenting a child with special needs is encouraged to attend. Jewish wisdom will be used as a framework for discussion prompts; however, no Jewish background or affiliation is necessary.
Who should attend: Parents/Primary Caregivers only, no observers please
When is the group: every other Monday from 8:30-9:45 PM
