There was a time a few years ago when life had gotten really hard and I did not feel I had the attention or energy to parent well. Fortunately that was the year the Parents Retreat was introduced & I signed up for it. What a life saver! I arrived so hurt and it was like putting on the oxygen mask and immediately starting to regain strength and heal with the kind, caring, loving support of the wonderful leaders and other parents there. It turned my life around. It got me back on track to being the parent I want to be. It was such a great experience and it helped so profoundly.
