Join Us, Because We’re Stronger Together
These are unprecedented times for parents who are facing new challenges because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve created a specialized virtual program in partnership with UBC designed to connect you with other parents going through the same thing in a private, secure network. This program, called Stronger Together, will give you access to evidence-based programs, tools and virtual coaching to help make each day a bit easier. By joining Stronger Together, you can access the Parenting During COVID-19 Community.
What is the ‘Parenting During COVID-19’ Community All About?
The Parenting During COVID-19 community is an app-based program all about supporting parents through the COVID-19 pandemic. We are here to help you learn more about how you can better support yourself and your child during this time. We will explore self care, burn out, mental wellbeing, emotions, our “new normal,” and some healthy habits for the whole family!
Not only will you get free virtual tools and connection in the palm of your hand, your participation will help us gather valuable information to ensure that parents have proper support in the future.

About Our Partners at the Institute of Curiosity
The Parenting During COVID-19 community has been created in collaboration with the Institute of Curiosity, which is founded by Kathy Taberner and Kristen Siggins. Kathy and Kirsten are a mother/daughter team specializing in effective conversation skills for work and home. Their unique conversation framework and simple, effective approach are what they are known for. At work, they help professionals have better conversations so they can optimize teams and leaders to move their business forward. At home, they help parents be their best when parenting gets tough so they can better understand their kids, bringing more joy and connection to their home life. Kathy and Kirsten are also authors of ‘The Power Of Curiosity: How To Have Real Conversations That Create Collaboration, Innovation & Understanding’, as well as certified executive coaches.
