Group Office Hours at The Co-Co – Dec 16 @ 10:45 am @ Virtual Master Class
Dec 16 @ 10:45 am – 11:45 am

Join The Co-Co’s Parent Coach in Residence, Lisa DiSciullo, Founder of Parenting Matters, for monthly group office hours. These meetings (held via zoom at first and ultimately as a hybrid of in-person and virtual) will gather like-minded parents for discussion, Q&A, and support. Lisa will focus on problem solving, practice, and accountability to work on individual parenting skills and perspectives. She will answer questions and provide a positive parenting perspective and content as topics arise, so write down your burning parenting questions as the month goes by and bring them with you for open Q&A. All parents are welcome—from moms of little ones to college students and beyond. We will learn together from Lisa’s expertise and one other.

This event will be hosted online – instructions on how to join will be provided upon registration.
