Parenting in Challenging Times

A weekly discussion/support meeting is being offered virtually on Wednesdays from 10-11 a.m. starting weekly on 9/7 to support those that are caring for kids during these challenging times. Participants join small group, break out rooms with those caring for kids of similar ages to share their struggles, support each other, and exchange helpful strategies. Breakout groups are parenting kids under 2 years old, preschoolers, elementary aged kids, tweens/teens, and as a solo parent.

There are monthly brief (10 minute) presentations on topics such as self-care, balancing the demands of work and family, UT resources, and parenting strategies. All UT employees and their partners/spouses that are caring for children are welcome to join.
