Pit Stop for Parents – March 10

As our children grow up, life only begins to move faster. In the midst of school and activities, we can often miss the experience of faith development and a deeper understanding of relationship in the family. The hope is to allow a space where parents can stop and reflect on how we can help our children develop through communication and connection with their family and faith. Classes are offered periodically with a different guest speaker, target age group, and focus or theme.

Our next Pit Stop for Parents will take place Sunday, March 10, from 10:10-10:50 a.m. in the All Saints’ Room (128), and led by Lizzie Elder, MSW, LCSW, therapist for women with Vitality Counseling Services.

At this session, we will explore the intricacies of the adolescent brain from a neuroscience perspective and come away with a better understanding and equip parents with tools to help feel confident and empowered to connect with your tween/teen.
