Pandemic Parenting Playgroup

Katie Hymans


3rd Sundays, 11:00am-12:00pm PT

Parenting is hard enough without throwing in a pandemic that has forced many of us into playing a more active role in our children’s education while still working, managing household chores, trying to take care of ourselves, and well, all the usual stuff. For some of us, the charm from the beginning months of the slowed down lifestyle and more time to connect with each other has worn off into exhaustion that THEY’RE ALWAYS THERE! When it’s sweet, it’s sweet. When it’s not, it’s painful. We’re all aware of how much our kids need play time right now, but so do we!!

Come cut some of the tension by playing with other parents, using the forms and tools of InterPlay. Come work some of the frustration through your system using movement, storytelling, stillness, and sound while connecting with others over the shared humanity of this particular parenting moment. Together, we’ll find moments of joy, laughter, release, and whatever else we need in the moment. Hopefully, by playing together, we’ll be able to go back to our families with a renewed sense of presence. For at least a couple minutes, anyway.
