Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota will hold an online program titled "Parenting in a Pandemic" at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13. The virtual event will allow people to participate through the Zoom videoconferencing platform.

The free event will provide an open-ended, information-sharing discussion. Participants will be able to discuss a broad variety of topics, ranging from back-to-school concerns and child care resources to tips on keeping our families sane and safe.

The program is scheduled to run about an hour and a half. Attendees can expect to connect with other parents in the same boat, and empathetic space to discuss their experiences –
