How do you help kids own their faith?
How do you talk to your teenager?
How do you help your child make wise decisions about technology?
How do you parent well during each phase a child goes through?

We’d like to invite you to Parenting Matters, a seminar filled with short TED-style talks from 8:30 until noon on May 5th, 2018. We’ll be covering topics that matter to parents, grandparents, and caregivers.

In addition to hearing our speakers and asking them questions, you will also get to enjoy some coffee and treats and choose a book to take home. The cost is $10 and childcare is available.
