Parenting parties are a fun way to get information about classes in the comfort of your own home. You pick a date, pick a topic you’re most interested, and organize a group of friends to come over. It’s an informal way to get all the same information without trying to make room in your schedule to attend a class.
Parenting parties can be done with your kids present or with no children present. Some people have also organized a babysitter to watch all the children while the class happens.
The session is $25/ person. If the host can arrange to have 5 other people there, they attend the class for free.
Here is a list of class topics:
