Parenting Programs

in Peterborough, NH and throughout the Eastern Monadnock Region

Are you struggling with relating to your teen? Unsure how to become the parent you’ve always thought you could be? Our parenting groups and programs offer a collaborative and welcoming environment where you can both be heard and learn the skills you’re looking for from other parents and our expert parent educators. Depending on the program, you may meet weekly throughout the school year or it may be a single event, sometimes morphing into a weekly group.

Making Our Programs Accessible to All

In addition to our on-site parenting groups held at The River Center in Peterborough, we also hold programs in other towns of the Eastern Monadnock region such as Jaffrey and New Ipswich. We want our programs to be accessible to all. Living in the Monadnock area, we know that transportation can be a barrier to many.

Parenting Your 4 to 9ers Support Group for Parents
Sep 11 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

Parenting Your 4 to 9ers is a new support group for parents of 4 to 9 year old children. These young thru middle years are essential for developing the trusting and balanced relationship you need with your child. A connected relationship is a relationship you can both depend on.

We will cover power struggles, problem solving, sibling rivalry, communication (with child and partner), temperament and developmental stages which will help you set a strong foundation for all that is to come. You will learn to understand the meaning of your child’s behavior and how to address the child’s needs that cause the behavior so you can set appropriate expectations and build a cooperative relationship.

Each meeting will include time to discuss any and all of the day to day struggles and joys you experience in the trenches of parenting as they arise.

Spaces in the parent group and the children’s enrichment program are limited. If you are bringing children to the children’s enrichment program, RSVP is required by Friday, September 6.

To reserve your spot, you will pay for the first 3 weeks of group in September. See our Program Policies and Procedures for more information.

Parenting Your 4 to 9ers starts on Wednesday, September 11 and runs for the school year, following the ConVal school calendar. While you may join at any time (space permitting) or leave at any time, participants are charged monthly.
