Parent Support Group
Raising children who experience the impacts of ableism, homophobia, and racism in our contemporary modern world can be an isolating and confusing experience for parents. When we are met with the complexities of identities that do not match ours as parents, we have to do the extra work of navigating not only their developmental stages but also the way that their identities intersect and complicate the experiences of growing up.
We are inviting parents and caregivers of children who at times feel indecipherable to them, especially around matters of identity. As parents, we can feel at a loss of not knowing whether we are showing up in the best ways and if we are meeting their needs, while also trying to find room to have our feelings about the ways our child differs from us.
This group is a safe place for parents and caregivers to land, to be seen and heard, to hear from others with similar experiences, and to have space to process their internal landscape. We love our children. We want the best for them. But to do this alone in the silos of our homes without support is unsustainable. Find community, support, strategies, and skills with a group of like-minded parents and caregivers of children with multiple marginalized identities. When parents can have a space to process what's alive for them, it creates more room to be present for their children. Leave feeling more empowered and grounded in your role with your child.
