heartJoin us at the Parenting  Cafe ...
on Facebook. The purpose of the Parent Café FCCTF Facebook is for parents to ask questions and feel supported by other parents in the community.  The Parent Café is not meant to take the place of a medical or social service professional but instead provide friendly chat, story sharing and answers to those pesky parenting questions.  The FCCTF staff will, at times provide feedback and answers to questions but the café is meant to be a place for parents to get the support they need in their daily interactions with their children. I encourage everyone who uses this Parent Café to remember that we are a child friendly organization that prides itself on promoting positive interactions between parent and child. So share stories, recipes, low cost activities and general feelings about parenting.  You may submit questions and discuss with other parents.

If you have a Facebook account search for "children's task force" to go the Children's Task Force Facebook and post a question or comment.
