Narrating our Parenting Journey Together Being a parent can be one of the most rewarding and the most stressful experiences in life. Over the last several months, we have seen even more challenges to parenting with the onset of COVID-19 and its numerous impacts on our families. You may be trying to juggle many roles, stressors, and complicated circumstances and/or you may just be trying to figure out how to parent in the midst of a pandemic. As we parent, we sometimes miss the opportunity to make sense of our parenting experiences with others, often keeping the difficulties to ourselves in favor of sharing the successes. But parenting can be enhanced by being in community with others. Thus, you are invited to participate in a free, three-week Narrative Parenting workshop designed for parents to reflect upon and talk with others about their parenting stories, particularly as it pertains to parenting in the midst of COVID-19. Each week, we will meet together digitally for 90 minutes in small groups to talk about the highs and lows of parenting. These sessions will be held online through Zoom. This workshop is part of a research study we are conducting through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Department of Communication Studies research lab Narrative Nebraska. Each participant will receive a $100 gift card upon completion of the study!
If you would like to participate, please contact the Narrative Nebraska lab at UNL at firstname.lastname@example.org about your interest and to schedule your meeting sessions. We look forward to you joining us!
