Parenting Support Groups

The 14th Street Y is rich with resources for parents of young children.

Our discussion groups are open to all parents, regardless of where your child may be enrolled. Topics cover a range of parenting concerns, from fostering empathy and setting limits, to gender identity and work-life balance.

2.9 – 5 years

This discussion group, led by Nancy Weinrib, LMSW, provides participants with an opportunity to talk together about the challenges of raising young children in today’s fast-paced world.

Topics will focus on the issues most relevant to parents of 2.9 − 5 year-olds, and will include helping your child adjust to the new demands of preschool or Pre-K, building peer relationships, fostering empathy and resilience, setting limits effectively, as well as gender identity, death, siblings, nutrition, sleep, cognitive and language development, school readiness, work/life balance, and other parenting concerns.

Open to all parents regardless of what program or school
your child/children currently attend. Groups form as needed.
