Join us for a delicious meal and networking, while we learn about Shame-Proof Parenting from parent coach and bestselling author Mercedes Samudio, LCSW. Topics include ways to help parents and children communicate with each other, manage emotional trauma, navigate social media and technology together, and develop healthy parent-child relationships.
Mercedes started the #EndParentShaming movement and she coined the term Shame-Proof Parenting – using both to bring awareness to ending parent shame.
Located in the Playhouse District of Pasadena, the charming Mexican restaurant El Portal, will provide a three option menu or buffet, including beverage and gratuity, for $20. Register today! We look forward to seeing you there.
