Parenting Workshop - Taking Care of Yourself as a Foundation for Parenting Well

Do you find yourself exhausted, uncertain or overwhelmed by the demands of parenting? Are you sometimes impatient, spread thin or ineffective in the day-to-day requirements of being a parent? Modern-day parenting can leave many of us depleted. But there is another way to parent; a way that enlivens and transforms our lives and the lives of our children.

Join a community of parents on Thursday, November 4 from 6:30-7:30 pm at the library, to explore the challenges of parenting and discover ways to replenish and rejuvenate yourself. Childcare for children 3 and up will be available.

The class is taught by Susan McNamara, M. A., CHHC. Susan, a mother of two, has explored the transformational opportunities of parenting. She is a long-term practitioner of yoga, meditation and whole foods eating, all of which has served as a foundation for self-care that informs her parenting.

Registration is REQUIRED. Please call the library at 413-527-9481 or sign up at the desk.
