Single Student Parents Workshop

Raising kids in a single-parent home has its own unique set of challenges that require confidence, resilience, and courage. It’s hard enough to raise kids with a partner, but it’s a different matter altogether when you’re alone, overburdened, and under-supported.

In this discussion led by Dr. Froyen, you will learn strategies to build your own support network and maybe make a few friends along the way!

Friday, January 13     1:30 – 3:00pm

University Housing Community Center – 611 Eagle Heights

Available to all current UW-Madison single student parents
