“There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.”

Moms 40+

These discussion groups for first-time moms over 40 meet one evening a month. We share a lot of laughter, and sometimes tears, as we munch on sweet and savory snacks while discussing topics of interest to older, wiser, first-time moms. A down-to-earth bunch, moms come for the warmth of connection and friendship as much as for the thoughtful discussions about life and parenting. Participating moms have children born from 2007 to present.

Monthly Parenting Group

For moms of toddlers and preschoolers, this group meets one evening a month to discuss parenting issues and life with young children. Moms bring their questions and concerns and receive feedback that is grounded in child development, neuroscience, and a relationship-focused framework.  With the camaraderie in this group moms are reminded that they are not alone in their struggles and we all share similar experiences.
