Family Foundations Class: The Resilient Parent

March 4 - May 20, 9:30 - 10:30 am

We may feel like we are stressed out and stuck in an impossible parenting situation. We may feel like we can no longer fly. Perhaps we should take a lesson from the penguin, a bird who has learned to adapt. To go deeper. To truly fly...underwater. Mantu Joshi, author of the “The Resilient Parent,” will be leading from his own book an informal study during March and April for parents who are ready to take the plunge and discover/discuss their own penguin–like resilience through mindfulness in parenting. We will be using his book as a launching point for sincere dialogue around what it is really like to be a parent in today’s culture. Parents of very young children are especially encouraged to participate. Meeting in Room 304 during the Sunday School hour.
