In a world of conflicting advice and never-ending demands on our time, it can seem next to impossible for families to know what's best for their children. Brigid Collins is pleased to offer a monthly series of parenting seminars for parents, grandparents, families and friends of children, aimed at supporting positive parenting and tackling tricky issues like managing children's anxiety and teaching responsibility.

Evidence-informed seminars (all led by professional parenting coaches) are held from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Brigid Collins Family Support Center at 917 S. 3rd Street in Mount Vernon. Fill out the form below to register for a seminar today!


One-on-one coaching and other parenting services are also available for families. Free initial
30-minute consultation - subsequent sessions are offered at $45 per 50-minute session.
Scholarships available. For more information, contact Kari Pendray, MA, at (360) 428-6622 or kpendray@brigidcollins.org.
