“As a parent, it is so hard to know you are doing a good job raising your kids. The SPARK speakers are always inspiring, giving me concrete ideas and nuggets of wisdom that guide my parenting choices and keep me motivated. The speakers are also reassuring, reminding me that I’m already doing a good job and helping me see the big picture of what is truly important for my family. I also love connecting with other parents who share my values at the programs or when we talk about them afterwards. We are so fortunate that we have SPARK in our community, helping us navigate modern-day parenting in such a positive, accessible way!”
