Online Virtual Bookclub

How To Talk So Little Kids Will Listen Online Support Book Club!

Beginning April 14th

Do you neeed a way to feel supported and connected in your parenting while practicing social distancing?

We will be starting our online parenting book-club and support group open to any parents/caregivers within Powell River with children ages 2-7 on April 14th!.

This will be an 8-week program using the book “How to Talk so Little Kids Can Listen”.

When you sign up for the program, we will provide you with an Amazon gift card to purchase either an e-book or audiobook version of “How To Talk So Little Kids Will Listen” for free.

We will be working through this book focusing on a chapter or two each week. You will take part in a private Facebook discussion group throughout the week, where we can discuss the contents of the book, connect with one another, and share our struggles and triumphs.

There will be exercises and questions based on the book set each week for you to practice at home in your family.

Every week the facilitator will do quick private text or phone call (you decide) to check in with you on how you are doing, if you need any extra support, how the exercises are going, or if you just need to chat about your parenting successes/struggles lately.

There are ten spaces available for parents/caregivers to participate in this program. Due to the limited space of this program if you sign up, we are asking you to be an active participant in the group discussion. We want to ensure those who commit to joining this program will utilize this service to receive support, develop connections, and add to their parenting tool-box!

Please contact the Family Centre & Library to receive more information and sign up.
