FEATURED KEYNOTE SPEAKERS:

  • Laura Markham, Aha! Parenting - Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids: When your child misbehaves, figuring out how to respond can be a daunting process. In this keynote, you will learn how to connect with your children and help them manage their emotions. When you parent with healthy limits, empathy and clear communication, you can help your child develop self-discipline and increase cooperation.
  • Scott Noyes, Empowering Programs - Parent/Child Interactions and Self-Esteem: Self-esteem can be a challenge in family interactions – for both parents and children!
