Parent Cafe'

Some of you may be interested in this parent cafe'. It's a chance to spend some time with other parents you know and meet some new ones! I believe these are held around the nation, but I only have info on the one here in Central Illinois. It's on Cinco De Mayo! So go chat with parents and maybe have a margarita afterwards! Hah!

Parent Cafés have been designed to add to parenting knowledge by sharing and listening to others experiences. Building friendships and relationships with others as support is also accomplished through conversation. Parents learn about resources and the benefits of receiving services from others. By sharing challenging personal events, parents will grow stronger and become more flexible. Parent Cafés have assisted parents to appreciate the role they play in helping their children reach their potential.
