Educational and activity-based parenting groups
The Golden Family Center offers a number of educational and activity-based parenting groups throughout the year. You can find the latest information on when and where our parenting groups meet in our What’s New section.
ParentConnect addresses changes that occur between parents and teens and helps them keep their relationship strong and positive. ParentConnect is for all parents – it helps protect teens as they move forward in their journey to adulthood.
The ParentConnect program is a 10-week program to support parents of pre-teens and teens. Parents meet in small groups (10-16) with two trained group leaders for 1.5 hours each week.
Please register early, as spaces are limited.
If you think this group will be helpful to you and you would like to join, please call or email the Golden Family Center. We will set-up an interview with one of the group facilitators, so you can find out more about the program. This interview can happen in your home, or somewhere else in town that is convenient.
ParentConnect will start on Thursday, April 4th, at the Early Years Center downtown, and there will be 10 weekly sessions in all. It is important for participants to commit to attending all 10 weeks. Each meeting lasts for 90 mins, and there will be snacks provided. We will try to help with any transportation issues that may come up and we will have the Youth Centre open next door, if needed, to help with child care.
