Our Table Talks are designed as an open discussion conference, lead by Dianea and occasional guest speakers. They are a great way to connect with other parents experiencing the same issues facing their children. They run at the same time as the older kids' mentoring workshops for easy convenience. The themes are the same as the mentoring workshops for kids but tailored for the parent's perspective. At Top-Kids we strive to help your whole household's well-being.
