At Parenting Journey, we believe that all parents and caregivers want to be strong, positive role models. First and foremost, we believe that the best way to raise hope and strengthen family relationships is to start by identifying your strengths and build from there!
Parenting Journey I
Offered in English, Spanish and Portuguese
To ensure the safety of parents/caregivers and staff, PJ began offering groups virtually in April 2020. This practice will continue at least through December 2020.
In Parenting Journey I, a small group of parents and caregivers meet for 2 hours a week for 12 weeks. The program includes activities, discussions, a family-style meal, and complimentary childcare.
The program is experiential which means you learn by doing – and it’s fun. Through a combination of hands-on activities and guided discussions, you will develop knowledge and skills that support you as a parent and role model. By reflecting on your own childhood, you will be able to choose what kind of parent you want to be and create your own style of parenting – one that reflects your personal vision and values.
Location: Somerville, MA
Duration: 12 Weeks
Cost: Free! Complimentary childcare and family-style meal provided for in-person groups.
