Support for Under the Willow Parents
As Under the Willow parents, we regularly join together to discuss a parenting book or resource. Most recently, we have been studying Kim John Payne's The Soul of Discipline. Payne "flips the script" on children’s challenging or defiant behavior and lays out an elegantly simple plan to support parents in establishing loving, age-sensitive boundaries that help children feel safe and settled.
We also offer an informal knitting/crafting night, which meets the first Wednesday of each month. Parents don't need to attend every meeting in order to be a part of the group, but come whenever it works! We are thankful to build community, enjoy each other's company, and do some good ol' fashioned crafting.
