EMBRACING PARENTING

 Virtual Parenting Conversations

Our virtual groups offer bite-sized parenting support from birth through preschool ages with plans for expanding through teen years!

These  gatherings are led by one of our experienced parenting educators and are a great way to explore relevant topics, ask questions, and/or simply connect to other families.

 

In addition to the ongoing gatherings listed below, your monthly subscription includes:

  • Access to our private Signal chat groups to stay connected with the families in your weekly gatherings

  • Monthly Saturday meet-ups for working parents

  • Discounts on participating classes

  • Access to our lending library with books and baby wraps

  • Join LIVE conversations with our experts during the Nest on TAPP

  • Monthly park days for local families

  • Bi-monthly Book Club meet ups are new for 2023!

 Our groups are designed to help you sift through parenting decisions, learn about a range of parenting approaches and most of all we are here to listen to your stories and connect you with other parents. For the most part, we're considering responsive, respectful and conscious parenting approaches together. That said, we're also always acknowledging the level of self compassion and grace required to parent with greater intention. We welcome your unique experience.

 

Once you subscribe, you'll have access to the Zoom links for ALL groups as well as the Signal and WhatsApp private chat group links to join the conversations and join in-person opportunities for those interested. We also meet ONE SATURDAY morning per month for working or busy parents who can't join on weekdays. You're always welcome to join audio only from anywhere, babies and children are welcome to be with you however these are not conversations centered for children to necessarily participate (although we all love baby smiles and toddler shares). These is time to set aside for you to connect with other adults and share in the journey together.

We'll talk all about the emerging child's joys and challenges: picky eaters, breastfeeding/weaning, sleep, tantrums, aggression, and more.
