Upcoming Community Events

Kids and Families Matter want your family to be healthy, safe,
happy, and supported. 

Because of this, when we hear about a community event that meets one or more of these areas, we want you to know about them.

All of the events published on this page are offered by providers that clients have recommended or that we have known to be respectful, honorable, ethical, and kind. * 

It is our hope that surrounding your family with such support will give you the strongest foundation and chance of being successful at reaching your family's goals.





The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting: A Wholehearted Revolution



What would it mean for our families, our community, and even the world if a critical mass of parents raised children who knew their worth and connected with others from a place of empathy and respect?

Children who navigate the world believing, “Yes, we are all imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that we’re also brave and worthy of love and belonging.” It doesn’t matter if your child is 4 years old, 14, or 44 – parenting is a lifetime commitment.
Join us in this four lesson course as we explore what it means to raise children with courage, compassion, and connection.

This course marks the beginning of the Kitchen Table Parenting Collection and is the prerequisite course for any of the parenting deep dive courses.
     
There are no required readings for the class, but Brené's  The Gifts of Imperfection is great foundational reading.
            
Course facilitated by Brené.
The course will begin on January 9, 2017.

20% off with promo code OPRAH (not sure when the promo expires...)
