Parenting Bootcamp

Workshop

Parenting Bootcamp

October 19 & 20, 2019

YWCA Toronto 87 Elm Street Toronto, Ontario M5G 0A8

Back by popular demand, this workshop is only offered every few years.  Time-strapped parents have difficulty scheduling weekly parenting classes, so this bootcamp allows parents a “one-and-done” experience of learning condensed into one weekend.  Perfect for people travelling from out of town.  

Alyson’s Parenting Bootcamp is a one weekend intensive parenting seminar designed for parents of children ages 18mo – 10years.  This is the essential parenting primer and toolkit every parent should have to be effective at raising children who are caring, co-operative and responsible.
