Monthly Online Parent Group on Feb 13

Next Online Parent Group Topic Is On Relationships

Our next Online Parent Group will take place on Thursday February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day.  Now that I am a parent, Valentine’s Day is about making sure I remember to request the class list so we can print out Valentine’s cards to all the kids, and figuring out how to bring something to the class pot luck that won’t trigger any food allergies.  Thinking about my relationship has become pretty far down the priority list most of the time, but with Valentine’s Day approaching I’m more conscious of this.  Not enough time, money, or child-care providers you trust, can all be barriers to focusing on your relationship.  Is this something that concerns you?  Have you come up with any solutions?

Please join us on Thursday February 13 as we discuss how to make time for our relationships amidst the continuous demands of parenting.

When: Thursday February 13, 2020

Time: 1:00 – 2:30 PM

Who: Parents of children who are blind or partially sighted living in BC

How: We use Zoom Conferencing to connect, and its really easy I promise.  You will be sent a link to join the meeting, and you just have to click on the link and you will be placed in the online meeting room.  You can connect from your computer, smart phone or tablet, or dial in from your phone if that is preferred.
Note: It is a long-distance number within Canada for those who choose to dial in by phone.

Shawn Marsolais, registered clinical counselor, will be online to facilitate the group, introduce parents to each other, share some information about the topic, answer questions, and offer support.

How do you register you ask?

Just send Shawn an email at: and request the link to join the next meeting.

This online parent group meets the second Thursday of every month.  Parents who are raising children who are blind or partially sighted are invited to ask questions, share successes, seek advice, and connect with other parents who are also raising a child with a visual impairment.  The predetermined topic is designed to start the conversation, but there will also be plenty of time for parents to talk about whatever they need to.

If you have any questions about these groups, or any other Blind Beginnings program, please feel free to contact Shawn at 604-434-7243, or toll free 1-866-736-8620.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
