Gathering Encouraging Moms' Support
GEMS is a place for mothers to meet for advice, tips, conversation and camaraderie. In the spirit of a support group, GEMS offers mothers a safe, comfortable space in which to learn, discuss, and lend encouragement to one another while under the guidance of a caring professional. The goal is for mothers to leave each meeting with some sort of “gem” or “nugget” of truth---a piece of practical advice that might inspire or energize mothers as they parent their children.
Discussions will usually revolve around three essential themes in parenting:
1) How do we regulate our own emotions as parents?
2) How can we better connect with our kids?
3) How can we coach and influence rather than attempt to control?
