Was a much needed reflection of my current parenting practices. Each week we met and shared our joys or frustrations in a casual and welcoming setting. We focused on personal goals and improving something in our self. Simple, reflective and thought-provoking.
Helpful, concrete ideas about how to set goals for yourself and benefit your family relationships.
We had a lively discussion about real parenting issues we all have. Focuses on the parents, with ideas and exercises geared to help adults be better, which will have a positive affects on the kids.
The goals are kept simple and keeping it to few was recommended so we wouldn’t be overwhelmed.
We had discussions about the difficulties with being a parent in a technical way.
I love these circles so much, this is my second one! It is so helpful to be in a place where people are willing to be vulnerable, share real struggles, and support reach other.
This group has helped me to develop the necessary skills as an individual and as a parent to be resilient, to be compassionate, and to be a good role model for my son.
Parent Wellness Circles are a fabulous idea. I love the idea of bringing community members together face to face. I think with technology we have lost a lot of human connection. I loved being able to look into other parents’ eyes and listening to their journey as a parent. It felt so comforting.
Being in a Parent Wellness Circle was very helpful to me as it made me see that others have the same issues I have, and I’m not alone.
I can’t believe how much we grew to care for each other after just six weeks. It’s hard to believe that we were all strangers such a short time ago. Now we are planning other get togethers, are exchanging phone numbers, and are friends on Facebook because we want to keep in touch.
It was great to be part of a live group, part of a “village”.
I found it very beneficial to be in a supportive, nurturing group such as this Parenting Wellness Circle.
I loved the supportive group that formed. Everyone listened as we each set personal goals, and also shared our challenges and successes. Parenting is a tough job, and it felt so great to be nurtured together.
Moms, Dads: This is a great, supportive, informative circle for any parent. We are lucky to have this opportunity!
Highly recommend being a part of a Parent Wellness Circle! It has been an amazing experience with amazing people!
