Through interactive presentations at schools, libraries, work places, community centers, and other venues, we highlight the parents’ role in developing and supporting healthy, engaged children.

Today’s high-pressure culture can interfere with healthy child development. It’s important that we establish practices in our families when our children are still young that buffer against these pressures and enable our children to flourish. Join us as we discuss research-based strategies for raising healthy preschoolers. We’ll explore how to encourage autonomy, cultivate resilience, and manage media use.
When we are too focused on grades and performance, we deny our children the time and energy they need to tackle the demanding work of growing up. In this presentation, you’ll learn how you can establish a healthier home environment for your school-aged child, reduce academic stress without sacrificing achievement, and increase your child’s resilience, creativity, and well-being.
WELL-BALANCED PERSPECTIVE ON COLLEGE “FIT”
The college admissions process can be a source of stress and anxiety for students and parents alike. This research-based workshop addresses many of the important questions we hear from families. What do college rankings really measure? Are students who attend more selective colleges better off later in life? What is “fit” and why does it matter? Participants will learn practical strategies to help reduce unnecessary pressure around the college admissions process and ways to support their student’s overall well-being and readiness for life in college and beyond.
MAKING HOMEWORK WORK
Homework is the one place where school and home come together, and there’s no guidebook for how to make this union work. We want to support our children without stifling their sense of responsibility and autonomy. Learn why the dynamics of homework have changed in recent years, what you can do to minimize homework stress, and how to establish healthy homework habits without being the homework police.
