Seminars are always physical conferences that take place at a particular location, which are usually announced ahead of time. They are meant to discuss, in a lecture-style format, great concepts and topics in parenting. They are particularly useful because they afford opportunities for participants to meet one-on-one and to interact with each other. In the course of many such meetings, friendships are fostered among participants, and some of these relationships last a lifetime. The relationships that spring from these offer further opportunities for parents to collaborate with each other and discuss their common parenting problems.
