No Wimpy Parenting Support Group for Moms


Do you feel frustrated and angry with your children? Is there a lack of respect from them? Are rules and warnings laughed at? Are your kids running the show?

Because this challenging duty often falls on women, the overwhelming stress of this (in addition to work and home care) can have us wanting to throw in the towel. And despite the need for an outlet, moms are frequently afraid to share their struggles for fear of being criticized. So wouldn't it be great to have a safe place to talk about your struggles and get parenting tips with other women going through the same thing? This special MOMS ONLY group offers support for women and a place to bond with other mothers. But most importantly, it teaches moms about discipline strategies, behavior plans, self-care, stress management, and taking back your power at home.
