Parents Have the Power to Change the World

About this Event

The first 1000 days of a child’s life are a critical period of development. At least one nurturing adult relationship builds resilience and helps children grow and flourish, even when exposed to stressful experiences. Supportive parents are also key to raising new generations of children who are accepting and compassionate. Parents have the power to change our community and ultimately the world. First 1,000 Days Sarasota fosters positive parent-child relationships, builds community resources to help families, and supports parents as community leaders. This presentation will highlight two-parent stories of resilience, review the impacts of childhood trauma, and offer suggestions for getting involved.

This event will be held on Zoom and live-streamed on the SRQ Strong Facebook. Please register through Eventbrite to receive details on how to join.
