Parent Up Pittsburgh
What Parent Up Is All About
Parenting is tough. It doesn’t get easier as children get older; every age presents a new challenge that we have to “level up” to meet. Parents are constantly learning and gaining new tools to better protect, teach, and guide their children.
That’s why we created Parent Up. We want to provide parents of tweens and teens a safe space to ask questions, to learn, and to network with other parents going through the same thing.
Parent Up: An Empowering Parenting Series, premiering in September 2020, will be presented virtually. Each session we will spotlight a new topic and host regional experts to help guide a 90-minute workshop to build knowledge and strengthen parenting skills.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How much does a Parent Up ticket cost?
The sessions are free! Thanks to generous donors, we are able to offer this series completely free to parents.
How do I join in to the session?
The Every Child team will send the live link to the webinar before the event to the email you registered with. Some of our presenters have their own webinar software and you may receive an email from them (check your spam folders).
How do I watch a session?
We recommend you join in on a laptop and use Google Chrome.
