Unitarian Universalist (UU) Parenting

Geared toward parents, caregivers, and anyone involved in the lives of children, birth to 18 years old. Lunch and childcare will be provided. Advance registration is requested.

The UU Parenting group is a discussion forum where we come together to learn about the challenges faced by the youngest members of our community and share ideas to help them navigate the great adventure of growing up.  The Seven UU Principles are a strong foundation on which we center ourselves and our children and, as such, will inform our discussions.

All are welcome.  In order to have an accurate headcount for childcare and lunch we ask that you register in advance for each event. Please register in advance by emailing uuseoffice@uuse.org.

Fall Event: “Empathy Is a Verb”

nterested in raising empathetic kids? Join us to watch and discuss a 20-minute Tedx Talk video by internationally recognized educator, speaker, and best-selling author Dr. Michele Borba. Learn of her findings on empathy as a key predictor of our goodness, happiness, and success. We’ll discuss and share our thoughts about ways we can help our children (and maybe ourselves) become empathetic beings.
