A Restorative Retreat for Parents of Intense Child
A Restorative Retreat for Parents of Intense Child

Parenting highly sensitive, challenging children can be both exhilarating and exhausting! The intense demands of consciously parenting these children often requires the need for self-care and replenishment. No matter how many parenting books and courses, if we are operating on depletion and overwhelm, none of these "best parenting" techniques will prove successful.

Self-care moments are often at the bottom of our list -- the "how" and "when" become great obstacles to this essential ingredient of positively parenting the intense child. This is a retreat dedicated to you as parent and will focus on your replenishment and self care. Through the day, you will discover the means that allow you to begin a daily practice to maintain your energy and enthusiasm for living life well.

Speaker(s): Barbara Baum Freethy, M.ED., Marilee Marrinan, BCPP, CST, BS Ed

Event Location: Vywamus Foundation Falmouth, ME
