To provide a place for parents and family members to meet and share experience, strength, give hope and awareness, to other families who have similar experiences raising children with ADD/ADHD, SPD, Anxiety, ASD, mental health diagnosis, developmental and behavioral challenges. Through sharing in this experience of raising these hard to raise kids, we grow stronger and more resilient.

Summer is a crazy time for us! Last year I eased up on our schedule and got a little loosy goosy, we totally paid the price and I plan on sticking to our normal routine this time around. Seriously, last summer was PAINFUL. This year there will be much less free time and I am hoping that will help. I am an optimistic realist, so I am planning for the worst but thinking/hoping it will be a fun summer.
Easy to Love has some great events coming up this summer too! We are SO excited that the plans we have been working on are coming to light! We are going to start doing 3-4 family activities a year, these will be tailored to meet the needs of our ETL kiddos and families. Our first family activity is June 8th at Orange Leaf in Bountiful. We will have the back party room to ourselves and the owner is offering an ETL discount. We have it listed as an open house 2-4pm, you are welcome to stay the entire time if you like! We will have a show playing, as well as some coloring pages. Please RSVP if you plan on attending!
Also this summer is our annual parent retreat! This year we are keeping it a little closer to home and got a campsite in Big Cottonwood. It is going to be a lot of fun, good food, good company and some great breakout groups.
There are some changes to our Davis Group location. Lil' Flippers Gymnastics has graciously offered their space as well as a staff to manage child care. Child care will cost $5 for 1 child/$8.00 for 2. The children will get to play in the gym with trained staff. We will be holding our meetings in the parent room which has access to cameras to monitor the children as they play. See flyer below for our summer group schedule & more info on Davis Child Care.
We hope to see a lot of you at our summer activities & groups! If you were unable to attend this months group & you would like a copy of the Summer resource list please email us! The summer resource list is full of special needs friendly activities in our community!
We also hope to see you at our May groups. The topic is Alternative Treatments. We will be chatting about the good, bad & controversial.
