Do you want to be a cool, calm, and connected parent?
We are all parenting through traumatic and anxious seasons of life. In today’s parenting world we are dealing with trauma and anxiety from a pandemic and quarantine, 24hr news cycles, and social media. How do we stay cool and calm when we connect with our kids in tricky situations?
Join us on Saturday, June 18 at the ClearView Church office (3829 Gilbert Drive, 71104) to hear from Lucinda Miles and Kelsey Petty on how to be a cool, calm, and connected parent. We will be learning ways to chill, communicate, and coexist with today’s world of parenting. You can read more about Lucinda and Kelsey below.
This is a parents only event, but parents feel free to team up for childcare! Refreshments will be provided. You don’t want to miss it!
