Program Philosophy

CORE BELIEFS:

  • Positive parenting takes practice. We strive for our best, not perfection.

  • Active listening is key, whether we are talking with each other, our children or ourselves.

  • Together we are better. Human connection improves our outlook, our understanding, our resolve and our ability to achieve our best.

  • Healthy communication makes strong families. 

  • Starting early builds a foundation for lifelong success.

THE MODEL:

  • Online or in-person discussions with local experts in the fields of nutrition, physical health and wellness, mental health, stress and anxiety, substance use, mindfulness, functional movement and more.
     

  • Online and/or in-person sessions offer hands on opportunities to practice healthy communication and build the foundations needed to see our youth become resilient young adults.

  • Masks and social distancing mandates will be followed at all in-person events.
