The start of school can be overwhelming, not only for kids but parents. Working on getting back into a routine with work and sleep schedules. After school activities, new friends and hormones as they age. Wouldn't it be nice to have a safe place to voice your concerns or at least have SOMEONE to speak with who's going through the same thing?

B.I.L.Y is here for you! Better Together Because I Love You is a free support group for parents in Yakima that meets every Monday at the Yakima Police Activities League, 602 N. Fourth Ave., every Monday from 6-8:30 p.m.

Take a beat knowing the next time your child rolls their eyes while you're dropping some real talk or begins fighting with their siblings or with someone at school, you have a place that is ready to listen.

Through a collaboration of concerned citizens and community leaders Better Together: Because I love You (B.I.L.Y) Parent support group was formed. Come join us to find out how to support one another on this journey known as parenting.
