Two villages will host a virtual meeting on parenting empowerment and self-care

ELMORE — A virtual town hall meeting of the two villages will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. on March 6.

This public discussion will focus on the importance of self-care for adults in our community, just as flight attendants remind travelers that in the event of an emergency, put on your oxygen mask first before going out. ‘help others.

The pandemic has placed many unexpected burdens on families. Adults really struggle to meet the social, emotional and educational needs of their children. Many parents/guardians are also caregivers at work, so they rarely have the downtime they need to recharge.

There has been a massive layering of stress between our personal and professional lives. We have been asked to do more with fewer resources. We have been separated from the supports that support us. We were forced to mourn the loss of lives, jobs and opportunities.

From the comfort of your own home, join Two Villages from 1-3 p.m. on March 6 for a conversation with a panel of experts who will discuss adult self-care. Panelists include Brian Davis, MA, co-founder of Reflect Wellness of Maumee; Dr. Ryan Travis, MD, Pro-Medica Memorial Hospital in Fremont: and Henrietta Whelan, MSW, executive director of Bayshore Consulting Services, Sandusky.

Parents, grandparents, teachers and youth activity leaders from Woodmore and surrounding communities are invited to this free event.

Registration is required to organize the links for the virtual meeting. For people without access to a computer, a Watch Party is organized by Trinity Lutheran Church in Elmore in their education building. Email [email protected] to register for the virtual meeting or concurrent Watch Party.
