This Conference is for you if:

  • You are interested in the science of parenting. You’re curious about what attachment, emotional intelligence, psychology, and brain science can tell us about how to raise kids.
  • You have kids that are more sensitive, strong-willed, bright, or spirited than others (and sometimes the advice in “traditional” parenting sources just doesn’t work for your child).
  • You want to raise kids who are resilient and empowered in the face of anxiety, depression, screens, trauma, bullies, the pandemic, racial inequality, and climate change.
  • You strive to use effective alternatives to threats and punishment and want to address challenging behaviors with connection and communication (without passing on your own baggage).

Join over 100 thousand parents, professionals, researchers, and authors sharing the science of parenting.

Get practical tools to make everyday family life easier.
