The Tension: Being a Perfect Parent vs. a Healthy Parent

(MF)

As parents, it is easy to feel like you have to have it all together and have all the answers for our kids. We often feel the pressure to make sure they succeed in every aspect of life. We find ourselves trying to do all this while still managing a home, tasks of our own, our own health and relationships. At the end of the day most of us feel like we just aren't measuring up. If you are feeling beaten down and overwhelmed by the big job of parenting, this just might be the class for you. This is Part 2 of a 3-week series of “parenting tension” classes. Childcare is available for a small fee by pre-registration only.
