PC: The Second Helping


Dear Post Corner’s Parents,

Parenting is tough during the best of times!

We are NOT living in the best of times right now, am I right?!

But that’s okay. Our children don’t need us to guarantee them the best of times. They just need us to be the best versions of ourselves. But… how do we do that when we ourselves are struggling?

During this workshop, we will have the opportunity to co-create some ideas that could work for you and your family.

Warmly,

ON THE DAY (Tues, June 15 @ 7:00 pm)

COME EARLY TO MIX AND MINGLE WHILE YOU DRINK THE WINE!

We are using a new platform! It’s called Kumospace and it’s a lot of fun.

Come early so that you can play with it. It does not require any downloading of new programs. You can access it just on any browser on your computer. Join any of the rooms except for the Private Meeting one.

Click on this link in your browser on your computer. Note that Kumospace does not work as well on mobile devices; I recommend that you attend this workshop on your computer.
