2014 Parenting Workshops Presented by Children's Hospital Colorado

Free parenting workshops are back!

Parenting. There is a lot to it. No one knows your kids like you do, but sometimes you need a quick tip, a new idea and maybe a little support to get past the fussing and on to the laughing, growing, learning and living. That's where the experts at Children's Hospital Colorado can help.

Children's Colorado is committed to providing a full range of pediatric services, often including services not available anywhere else. Our parenting workshops are one way we are able to share our pediatric expertise with you and your family.

Admission to the Parenting Workshop Series is FREE, but space is limited!

Please reserve your spot online today. Workshops are for adults only, except for the seminar on April 9. Here's the 2014 schedule at a glance:


2014 Parenting Workshop detailed schedule

940 Saturdays from Crib to College - Making the Most of Every Stage of Childhood

There are 940 Saturdays between a child’s birth and the day he or she turns 18. That may sound like a lot when your kids are very young, but the years pass quickly. At each developmental stage, from the time your child first sits up, learns to walk, ride a bicycle, and ultimately drive, there are new opportunities for making the most of family time. This talk will guide parents in choosing age-appropriate, fun and memorable family activities for all the stages of childhood.

When: Thursday, September 18 from 6:45 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.

Guest Speakers: Harley A. Rotbart, MD, Professor and Vice Chair Emeritus, Department of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine
