Craving practical strategies for helping your child (and family) thrive and prepare for what’s next?

We’re here for you.


(Tuesday nights, 8pm ET/5pm PT, beginning November 17)

WEEK 1 / NOVEMBER 17: A Conversation on Screens and Social Media

Amber and Devorah will address parents on how to support our children in using screens and social media. How can we discern positive screen use versus potentially harmful or time-wasting screens? How can we set healthy limits for older children on overall screen use, while also encouraging their critical understanding of the news they receive via social media and their engagement in advocacy and civic discourse? This webinar will help parents understand our own values, research on the impact of screens on developing brains, and some useful tools and strategies for setting flexible boundaries for children around screens and social media.

WEEK 2 / NOVEMBER 24: A Conversation on Designing Your Life

Christine and Laura will support parents in navigating a holiday season unlike any other and adopting healthy time management habits to thrive through the rest of the pandemic. This includes setting expectations (yours and kids’) and planning ahead to anticipate the emotional highs and lows. They will offer tips for prioritizing, setting boundaries and saying no to requests that would push you over the edge — so that you can say yes to choices that honor your values.

WEEK 3 / DECEMBER 1: A Conversation on Parenting Adolescents

Katie and Phyllis will discuss the joys and challenges of parenting adolescents, suicide prevention and coping with anxiety. They will share strategies for handling school stress, friendship woes and talking about important issues, from sex and drugs to online behavior and morals.

WEEK 4 / DECEMBER 8: A Conversation on Young Children

Tina and Mona will bring compassion, humor and science to the challenging — and crucial — task of raising the youngest children, infants to kindergarten age. They’ll offer strategies for relationship building and managing tantrums, with a focus on co-regulation and understanding children’s behavior as communication and a reflection of their stress response. This session will help parents find our own rhythm and trust ourselves as we support our child’s development around sleeping, eating, potty training, discipline and more. The authors of The Bottom Line for Baby and Beyond Behaviors will help parents manage our own reactivity in this very intense and demanding phase.

WEEK 5 / DECEMBER 15: A Conversation on Race, School Culture and Anti-Racist Parenting Support

Cornelius and Rosetta will discuss raising anti-racist kids, engaging in courageous conversations and building inclusive communities. Amid our current realities of political polarization, Black Lives Matter, hate crimes and immigration policy, they will offer advice for parents seeking to engage across difference — and share how the choice to listen to children is an important step in building equity.

WEEK 6 / JANUARY 5: A Conversation on Children’s Social and Emotional Well-Being

Audrey and Nefertiti will share tools for parents to help children develop their social and emotional intelligence, even in a time of social isolation and physical distancing. They’ll discuss conflict resolution, improving self-regulation and debriefing kids on traumatic events, including racism and current events. Parents will leave this session more confident in their ability to support their children’s friendships, relationships and emotional well-being.

WEEK 7 / JANUARY 12: A Conversation on Expectations, Homework, and Executive Function

Ana and Tiffany will offer parents compassion and strategies for managing the pressure of expectations: the school, the neighbors, and our own. They’ll give guidance on setting limits, supporting homework and building children’s executive function — and how to know when to drop the ball. Their advice will help parents enforce structure and healthy limits, while acknowledging the realities of this unusual school year. Parents will leave the session with new ideas for everything from screen rules to supporting kids in organizing schoolwork and managing their own time and mindset.

WEEK 8 / JANUARY 19: Moderated Town Hall

The last week of the series will be a virtual, moderated Town Hall featuring a number of our speakers responding to the most pressing concerns and questions from the Parenting in Place community. Moderator and speakers to be announced soon.
