Moderated by Trity Pourbahrami, the panel entitled Navigating Zoroastrian Parenthood, will discuss the challenges and opportunities of raising children in North America. The panelists will share their unique approaches to balancing school, children’s extra curricular activities, the demands of their career, religious education, and involvement with the Zoroastrian community. The main objective for this panel is to engage Zoroastrian families with young children to be more active in the community by creating a forum for them to learn from each other.
