Raising children has always been demanding, and our current culture has its own challenges (social media, competition, culture of protecting kids from discomfort). Meet monthly with other parents, using a parenting book and discussion to keep trying to be the best parent you can be.

Children & Adolescents

Sibshops offer brothers and sisters of children with special needs an opportunity to meet other siblings in a relaxed, supportive, and recreational setting. Participants share common joys, common concerns, and learn to handle sibling-specific "sticky situations." Sibshops are a mix of games, discussion, food, and fun! 

Sibshops are currently offered one Sunday afternoon each month in Northbrook. Teen Sibshops are offered as requested.
