Whether you are a fiscal wizard or a beginner, you can teach your children essential financial literacy. The skills you teach your children will help them develop habits that will enrich the rest of their lives.

Learning to have romantic relationships and deal with sexually maturing bodies are essential tasks of healthy teen development. As the parents, you may feel as unprepared as your kids feel to navigate this ever-changing stage. While adolescents sometimes act like they know it all, they often feel vulnerable and unprepared for the social and sexual realities of romantic relationships. And the same may be true for you – maybe you are wondering how do I support exploration and independence while keeping my child safe, especially during these challenging times. 

Participants in this class will be able to 

  • Apply steps to navigate teens’ romantic relationships with trust, compassion, clarity and consistency 
  • Identify strategies to balance monitoring with trust 
  • Recognize the connections between physical and romantic relationships with parental relationship health

  • Does it feel like it’s time for your child to be in a classroom?
  • Did your child enjoy online learning but you want to do something more?
  • Are you torn between the benefits of social stimulation and creative teachers and fear of the pandemic?

The start of a new school year brings up more questions for parents of young children. For many years, small groups of parents have joined forces to provide the benefits of early care and education classrooms. Early childhood cooperatives have sprung up out of parents with shared values banning together to share teaching and care responsibilities. Other options also exist from high cost nannies to shared cost, microschools, to loving, lower cost family day care homes, to learning from home with resources from public schools.

But how to proceed when there are so many possibilities? This class will help you assess and plan for your young child’s care and education experiences.

You will be able to:

  • Identify your education values for your children
  • Analyze the unique needs of your child and family
  • Identify well-understood models for educating young children outside of classrooms
  • Recognize the financial cost vs time benefits for parents of each approach
  • Apply first steps in finding resources to get something off the ground
