Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Free Parenting Seminars–From Babies to Teens
posted by: Amber Johnson
A few years ago, my husband and I were in the
throes woes of potty training our potty-training-challenged daughter.
We had tried everything and were at the end of our ropes. That is when we heard about the Children’s Hospital Colorado’s free parenting seminars that include advice for parents with babies to teens.
