    Upcoming events

      • Thursday, April 19, 2018
      • 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
      • Marta's place

      Join us for drinks & snacks & fun conversation from 8-10pm.

      No RSVP is required! Come when you can & leave when you need to - everyone understands. And all parents are welcome: moms, dads, primary or secondary caregivers, both! Not-yet-mobile babies are also welcome to attend. There will be plenty of people to cuddle them!

      TPOMBA members find our POMs meetings to be an incredibly valuable part of their membership. POMs meetings are held monthly in a range of Toronto neighbourhoods. They offer an opportunity to connect with other parents of multiples to share ideas, information, concerns and questions. Meetings are a supportive environment to work out parenting challenges and hear from others who have “been there”.


      There are four POMs groups within TPOMBA, with one or more volunteer leaders in each group. POMs group leaders are experienced parents of multiples who offer moral support, practical suggestions, and access to resources. Non-members may attend POMs meetings as guests.

      Body Safety Awareness Talk

      Talking to our kids about body safety can be a daunting task. We, as parents fear for our children’s well-being, but many don’t know how to discuss this, at what age to begin or whether or not it is even necessary. 

      With professional and compassionate guidance, you can educate yourselves on how to talk to your kids about body safety, encourage personal boundaries, increase communication in your family and instill confidence in yourselves and your offspring that they truly are protected to the best of your ability.

      We invite TPOM Members to join us:

      Date: Tuesday, May 15, 2018

      Time: 7:00pm

      Location: Ralph Thornton Community Centre 

      765 Queen St. E, Toronto, ON, M4M 1H3

      Parking: available along Queen St E or down any of the nearby side streets including (Saulter, Grant, Boulton or Lewis). Or completely accessible by TTC. 

      This is a members only event.

      About Amanda Frenkel, M.S.W., R.S.W.

      I am a registered Social Worker, holding a Specialization Bachelor of Psychology from Concordia University, Montreal, as well as a Bachelor and Masters of Social Work from McGill University, Montreal.  For the past 15 years, I have been working as a child protection worker with 4 Child Welfare agencies in Quebec and Ontario, spending my last 10 years with the Children's Aid Society of Toronto.  In 2013, I began working with the BOOST Child and Youth Advocacy Centre, with a focus on forensic child protection cases that involve the potential for criminal charges. Most recently, I began working with Jewish Family and Child in Toronto and have been gaining experience meeting unique child protection challenges in the Jewish community.

      I am also a mother of two boys, ages 7 and 5, as well as a 2 year-old daughter. I speak from the heart when say that I feel the anxiety about discussing safety with our children.  My goals are to increase awareness and parental understanding of abuse, and to dispel myths that often prevent us from properly addressing this serious topic.  You don't need to fear the world; you just need to be prepared.

      This is a talk that every parent should attend.  

      If you have questions, please contact Deanna at events@tpomba.org.
