opportunity to discuss points of conflict and collaborate together on solutions in a
supportive environment. Through culturally relevant group activities, families are offered
a structured place to intentionally connect with each other for, as many past participants

Parents and children work together on communicating expectations and responding to
conflict in the Positive Discipline session…
