Safeguarding the well-being of children and families is a fundamental principle of Family Central, an all-volunteer parenting support network based here in Warwick. Join us for a community conversation to raise awareness about the critical issues facing today’s families and the questions most prevalent on parents’ minds. Topics discussed will include ordinary stresses of family life, today’s social/cultural pressures that children face, and the impact that the Covid pandemic has had on all of us.
Founder Beverly Braxton will lead participants in a discussion to identify the parenting challenges they believe would benefit from community support. She will also share how creating a parenting community can reduce isolation, expand resources, and build connection as an antidote to such challenges. Join us for this important conversation. Audience ~ Adults: parents, grandparents, guardians.
