Parent Support Group – Summer 2024

Parenting a child can be stressful, and parenting a child who struggles to eat can be even more so. This professionally facilitated support group aims to bring parents together and create space to discuss and empathize through some of the common struggles and challenges that are faced when mealtimes are hard, especially during the busy summer months. Your child may struggle with meals for a variety of reasons, and this group is open to parents of children of all ages and challenges.
