Parenting and the Brain: How to Foster the Development of your Child's Mind (Without Losing Your Own)
Course Code: 9614
  • Tuesday July 12th 2016 (9:00am - 2:00pm)
Parenting doesn’t come with a manual, and most of us are not aware of how basic brain science impacts behavior, motivation, personality, attitude, and success. This workshop will engage participants in learning how to nurture mindsets for learning, connection, caring, and purpose in their children (from infant to adult). Learn how to effectively respond to emotions and behaviors in ways that foster grit, resilience, and a growth mindset. I won’t promise that your children will quit fighting over the remote, but we will have brain-based strategies in our toolbox to keep us sane (while inconspicuously teaching them strategies as well)!
