Parenting Education Program – Expectations and Reinforcement
April 13, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$100
PEP: Parenting Education Program at Marvelous Minds is excited to announce the 2022 PEP Talk Series
Join parenting expert, Dr. Kymberly Larson and child/adolescent therapist, Caitlin Joycesmith, MSW, in a 4-part series dedicated to improving family relationships and learning skills/strategies for positive parenting practices.
Part informative lecture, part skills-based group work; each session will give you the opportunity to chat with our parenting specialists about your specific questions as well as learn from other parents. Each session builds upon previous content, so it is recommended to attend the entire series. We understand how busy life can be, so you may sign up for as few as one 90-minute session. Cost per session is $100. Pay in advance for all 4 sessions and receive our early-bird discount of $375! Bring a second caregiver for the same child/children for only $20 additional per session. Cost includes all materials.
Program Dates: April 6, 13, 20, 27; 6:30-8pm
