Parents Morning Out from PIC


Here is the list of future discussion topics for Parents Morning Out from the PIC:

Do you ever wonder if other parents are feeling the same way you are? Dealing with the same issues you are? Do you wonder if other children sleep through the night, have tantrums, fight with their siblings? At Parents Morning Out parents discuss these issues and more. Parents share highs and lows, encourage each other and build friendships. Please join us for a morning of coffee, discussion and building connections with other parents.

Parent Information Center

Grand Forks Public Schools has a fantastic resource center for parents called the Parent Information Center (PIC). It’s mission is to develop positive relationships with families and to provide parents with skills and resources to raise healthy, happy, educated children.

The PIC offers classes, books, videos, dvds & cds and “Topics in a Bag” as resources for parents. The PIC also offers “Parents Morning Out” during the school year. Usually Monday morning, parents come together (with a facilitator) to support and learn from each other. Various parenting topics are discussed and ideas are shared. (There is usually daycare provided). Please contact the PIC for more information on “Parents Morning Out”.
