I get so excited when I meet others who are as passionate about supporting parents as I am. Today I met two individuals who are embarking on making their dreams a reality-creating a resource center for parents and kids. Jane Costello and Karin Lefranc have joined forces to create “The Firefly Center: lighting the way for parents & kids”. Jane teaches Love and Logic classes for parents of children ages 2-13. They are taught in a five-week series and help parents reduce power struggles, whining and arguing! Who doesn’t want that? If you are interested only in these classes, www.blueprintparenting.com has a schedule.
Karin teaches both mindful yoga classes and “manners matter” classes. She recently authored “A Quest for Good Manners” and is a certified children’s etiquette teacher.
I was so pleased to learn that The Firefly Center will also be offering other classes: Infant and Child CPR, Prenatal yoga, Story time, and theatre classes. There is a huge deficit of support groups for new moms, so I was ecstatic to learn that Sarah Thayer, doula and massage therapist, will be soon beginning one at The Firefly Center.
