Come Gather With Parents To Talk — Community Connect
We’re hosting FREE community connect gatherings for working parents every month.
Come gather with other parents and soon-to-be-parents to meet each other and be in community and connect. Come as you are, show up in your jammies, with your baby, nursing, hiding in the bathroom, ducking into a car for a meeting—whatever you need to do, by all means. Sounds, noises, messes all welcome.
Really, the only thing I ask is that you remember to turn the video and sound off if you’re using the bathroom 😃).
First Fridays through December. Our next community connect gathering is on is on Friday, October 2nd, 2020.
Come hang out and say hi to other parents. I’ll also tell you a little bit about what we’re doing at Startup Parent (6 minutes, tops), and then we’ll have 40 minutes to play games and pop into breakout rooms to introduce ourselves to each other.
Don’t know what to say or how to be a human because you’ve been stuck in your home (with children, or pregnant, or stressed)? Don’t worry—I’ve got you! I have prompts, games, boundaries, and rules. You’ll be delighted.
All genders welcome, all moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, and parent friends are welcome. Soon-to-be-parents and trying-to-be-parents are welcome to join. If you have some sort of kid in your life, or you want kids in your life, please come gather with us.
Friday, October 2nd at 12pm Pacific // 3pm Eastern.
1 hour. Zoom call. Video preferred but come how you are and as you are. Please join by 15 after the hour to be able to join the breakout rooms.
Spread the word — feel free to invite other parents
If you know of a parent that needs something like this, tell them to come join us. We’d love to have you! Social images below and search out Instagram page for details.
