Cultural Sharing Circles
BILY Canada launched in February 2010. Since that time, we have heard from parents all across Alberta. Parents who are dealing with crisis situations such as drug and alcohol abuse, cutting and criminal activity. We also hear from parents who are just trying to take back control of their home. If you are one of those parents, we can help.
We are parents who have been in crisis situations and now through our own experience want to help others. Based on our 10 Steps to Success we can do just that.
We are not professionals, but through BILY we were able to survive the crisis type situations we have found ourselves in. BILY will give you the necessary tools to know that you 1) you are not alone 2) to take care of yourself and 3) to learn how to not feel guilty for the choices your child/teen/young adult children are making to name just a few of the steps.
The Program is Free. Please join us – realize that your child is not the only child out there that is making poor decisions and that you are not the worst parent in the world.
Meetings are every Thursday night in Parkland County starting May 4, 2017 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Please note that for new parents, Orientation is at 7:00 p.m.
Please contact Claudette Young (780) 245-2459 to register. (Excluding Holidays) MEETINGS ARE FREE of CHARGE
