      Parents should register using this Google Form:  Not all the questions will be applicable, as it is a generic registration form used for many of their groups. 

      Parents only need to provide their email address and name and check off that they are registering for the "Parent well-being group." Otherwise they should write "not applicable" for the remaining questions. 

      Contact information is provided on the flyer if the Google Form is too confusing.
