The Parent Education Series is a leading provider of inclusive, high-quality education for parents/caregivers, students, educators, mental health professionals, and community members. Founded in 2006, our organization has reached over 120,000 attendees on critical issues—mental health, substance abuse, digital media, and more—that impact the health, safety, and well-being of children and teens.
While most of us do everything we can to reduce or avoid stress, Stanford health psychologist Kelly McGonigal, PhD, delivers a startling message: Stress isn’t all bad. New research shows that stress can make us stronger, smarter, and happier—if we learn how to embrace it.
We all want to raise kind and thoughtful kids – children who can reach out with compassion and bounce back from challenges. That’s why we need to attend to their emotional development.
Join Deborah Farmer Kris – educator, child development expert, and author of “You Have Feelings All the Time” – to learn more about the science of emotion and how everyone benefits when we learn how to name, normalize, and navigate our feelings.
