Virtual Parent Workshops

Virtual Parent Cafés for parents of children birth through age five


Maryland Family Network is providing Virtual Parent Cafés for parents of children birth through age five. Please share information about these Cafés with your families!

Virtual Parent Cafés are a free, safe space for parents to have meaningful conversations with other parents. The structured conversations give parents an opportunity to talk together about things that matter to them. They’re a great way to help us stay connected and keep our families strong during these difficult times.


Advance registration is required – just click on the link for the Cafe you want to attend!

Please contact Brenda Badger, with any questions you may have.

Sibling Rivalry-Tuesday October 27, 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Many families are home together all day, every day. With less time to separate, sibling rivalry can increase. This workshop is for parents experiencing challenges between their children such as arguing, name calling and fighting.  We will cover why sibling rivalry occurs and practical ways you can prevent and bring an end to these challenges!
