Pineapple Support offers support for parents
Pineapple Support is running an online support group and webinar for parents in the adult industry in October 2020
Adult industry mental health organization Pineapple Support is running 2 services in October 2020 to support parents and carers who are also part of the adult industry. Parenting is hard enough without the additional stresses of working in a stigmatized industry that is adult in nature. Through their 6 week support group and one-time webinar, Pineapple support hopes to start a conversation about parenting and offer resources for adult industry members who are struggling with their dual roles as parents and porn stars.
Parent/Carer Online Support Group (Oct. 6, 2020)
This group is for any parent/carer working within the adult industry who would like to explore their parenting issues and worries in a shared space while supporting other group members and their particular issues. The aims of this group are to provide a space where you can talk about your experiences and gain feedback and support without being judged or criticized. Reduce feelings of isolation, improve your relationship with your child/children, gain resources, find helpful ideas, and feel positive as a parent!
