  • "The Daddy Questions" Group

    $75.00

    Our Founder, Jane Mattes, LCSW, is offering a group on “The Daddy Questions”. Jane will address how and when to tell your child about their origin and family structure, particularly focusing on the child’s questions about “Daddy”. Who is my “Daddy?” “Do I have a Daddy?” “Where is my Daddy?” and more. Being prepared, and preparing your child, are important to helping the child understand their own story.

    In addition to being the Founder of SMC, and running SMC for over 40 years, Jane is a psychotherapist and the single mother by choice of an adult son — and now is a grandmother.

“I joined SMC when my son was a baby, and he's about to turn 21! The wealth of knowledge and support I've received from SMC got me through some really hard times and I found some great friends. We are a diverse group, and yet we are wholeheartedly there for one another.”
