We are pleased to offer child psychologist Dr. Abigail Romirowsky’s ‘Good Enough Parenting’ series. As we try to balance the needs of our children, safety concerns with the pandemic, uncertainty, and our own mental health, it is even more essential to support parents in being “good enough”. Research suggests children are healthier when parents do a ‘good enough’ job, rather than striving for the mythical perfect version of parenting. The discussion is offered via ZOOM, and will not be recorded. Questions can be posed ahead of time or live via chat.

As both a child psychologist and a fellow “doing her best” parent, Dr. Romirowsky values creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for these webinars. Feel free to “come as you are”, in sweats, multi-tasking or curled up with a cup of tea. Attendees can choose to participate with your camera on or off and/or to change your zoom screen name depending on your privacy concerns.
