Parent Lab: Mental Health
When: 02/28/2021 - 02/28/2021
It is easy for parents/caregivers to feel overwhelmed by the many challenges their children face. Often it can be easy to get discouraged and feel disconnected from your child as they navigate life. Join the CPC GenTeam on Sunday, February 28 at 1:30pm as we host our second virtual Parent Lab. Our Parent Labs are designed to equip and encourage parents in key areas of their child’s development and maturity. This Parent Lab will focus on caring for the mental health of your child and is focused on those caring for children between the ages of 0–18, but all are welcome. You will walk away equipped with practical tools to connect with your child at any age as well as feeling encouraged that you are not alone in this challenging conversation.
Our Parent Lab will be guided by Lindsey Sneed and Shari Shussel.
