Parenting as a Team

We all learn through work, volunteering, sports or other activities that we are often most effective when we work together as a team.  The same is true for parenting,  Whether we are parenting in one or two households, when we work with our partner out of the same "playbook", we provide our children with consistent expectations and limits they need.  In this workshop, we will discuss effective strategies to get you and your partner on the same page.  Refreshments will be served.

Parenting as a Jewish Journey

How do we teach our children to treat people with respect?  What kinds of limits and boundaries are appropriate for parents to set?  When can children be independent and when do parents need to step in?Judaism has perspectives on all of these questions and more which we will discuss using "The Blessing of a Skinned Knee" by Wendy Mogel, PhD. as a guide.  Price includes lunch.
