Circle of Parents

Circle of Parents® groups offer a safe, friendly, confidential, non-judgmental, supportive environment to share with and learn from other parents. It’s a place where anyone in a parenting role can openly celebrate success, address challenges, find information and resources to support raising children.

Join other parents and caregivers all around Colorado online to share support, tips and advice or just talk. Connecting with other people can reduce stress and help you remember others care about you. At Circle of Parents, you will talk about:

  • Activities to do at home with children
  • How to maintain self-care and self-kindness
  • Resources and tips to stay healthy and safe
  • How to talk about what’s going on with your children
  • … whatever you want to talk about!
