What is a Parent Café?
Parent Cafés are evenings of sharing and learning amongst parents....in space that appreciates all that parents have to offer and all that they need. Parent Cafés are driven by the knowledge that parents can, must, and do tap into their wisdom and resources in order to strengthen their own families.
Guided by trained Parent Hosts, parents gather in small groups and explore questions that really matter to them, questions that they genuinely want answered. Those questions deal with:
Taking Care of Yourself
Being a Strong Parent
Building Strong Relationships with Your Children
How does it work?
At the Parent Café, every parent participates in gathering and sharing the group's wisdom. Together parents lead their own learning and growth, they gain confidence, recognize what they already know, and realize what supports they already have around them. They become clear about what their families' challenges are.
With other parents, parents devise ways to solve problems and resolve issues in their own families. They identify issues and find ways to address them, committing to individual action. And they build trusting relationships, social support, and connections with other parents.
At the Parent Café you will:
Learn About Community Resources
Create a Support System
Parent Cafés provide parents with an opportunity to build connections to other parents, share ideas and determine what they need for themselves and their children. Through the Parent Café process, parents move beyond isolation to give and receive the support they need to keep their families strong.
Through these meaningful conversations, parents are working to build five Protector Factors that benefit their families: (1) opening up their social circle, (2) building their ability to bounce back or be resilient, (3) knowledge of child development and parenting, (4) access to supportive services, and the ability to (5) help their children communicate and express their feelings.
