Mindful Monday Parenting Conversations

Creating Positive Conversation and Purposeful Parenting 
with parent coach and educator Julie Hannan

What are Mindful Mondays?

Mindful Monday Parenting Conversations were developed for families to begin mindful, positive conversations around common parenting experiences. This year’s talks are a collection of topics focusing on purposeful thinking about parenting issues related to school and learning. Join us in the Sparkle Spot Learning Loft for an evening of ideas, collective inspiration, and parenting connection.

Mindful Mondays will generally be the second Monday of the month.
