Parenting is wonderful, but parenting is hard! The goal of this talk is to shed light on the some of the hard parts of parenting. We bring certain topics out of the shadows and into the light so parents can clearly see that they are not alone in their experiences. The talk de-stigmatizes topics like: Postpartum Depression, Health Issues, Discipline Difficulties, School Struggles, Mental Health Issues, Substance Use. We provide encouragement and timely reminders for all parents, as well as practical tips on how to lay good parenting groundwork and how to specifically handle each situation.
