Parenting Girls

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) / ECFE Parent Education -
School Year 2024-2025

How do you help your daughters grow up to be happy, healthy and strong? How do we navigate the obstacles of growing up in a world that can seem so challenging for young girls? All girls are worthy of friendship, love, support, kindness, safety, well-being, and adults who will reinforce the best in them. This course is for parents and caregivers of girls who wish to support girl's healthy transition toward young adulthood.

Potential discussion topics include supporting emotional growth while considering communication, changing bodies and healthy body image, friendships and social dynamics, common and typical bumps and pitfalls for girls (and ideas for how to anticipate and manage them), the challenges of effectively supporting girls as they become skilled in their world, and how the pandemic has impacted girls.

The format of the class might include podcasts, reading and discussing articles on current topics related to parenting girls, and small group discussions based on the age of the girls of participants. Topics and format are flexible and will reflect the interest of the group.

For the months of January and April, class will be held on the 3rd Thursday.
