Parenting is one of the most difficult jobs in the world. If you find that your children are challenging in their behaviors, emotional reactions, or growing up too fast, it can be hard to know how to respond effectively as a parent. You are certainly not alone! The following workshops are being offered as a source of support, psycho- education, and receiving concrete tools to prepare your next response to your child or teen.

There is a charge of $45 per person or $80 per couple per session. Although parents may “drop-in” per session, meaning there is no need to commit to the whole series, we ask that you kindly call to register one week prior to each session since space is limited: 617-786-0137. Hope to see you there!
