Parenting (and playing) with sanity

A flurry of family-minded activity took place at the Simon Family JCC on Sunday, November 14.

Parents and their children joined PJ Library in Tidewater for a special Sunday Fun Day that included a parenting workshop with Susan G. Groner, author of Parenting with Sanity & Joy, and founder of The Parenting Mentor.

As children were cared for and entertained by Camp JCC counselors, parents joined Groner for coffee and conversation.

During the workshop, participants had the opportunity to ask Groner specific questions, consult in a friendly environment with other parents on common parenting woes, and take plenty of notes. When they left the workshop to rejoin their children for the remainder of Sunday Fun Day activities, they were rife with new parenting knowledge and ideas. Each parent received a free copy of Groner’s book, which she signed during the session.

This free program is just a glimpse at the many offered on the Sandler Family Campus.
