About Your Hosts

Connection is essential! For parents and professionals, it’s hard (even impossible) to work together with kids, to teach and learn, to listen and love if we aren’t connected at the heart. Neuroscience has shown that connection and attachment builds kid’s brains, contributes to mental health, helps kids take risks and be resilient. Join Cecilia and Jason Hilkey and 25 other scholars, researchers, and authors, as we explore the science of connection and practical tools for everyday life with kids.

About Your Hosts

Research shows that warm parenting significantly helps with not just with everyday challenges, but also mental health, and wellness. Join this exciting conversation to get practical parenting tools from Cecilia and Jason Hilkey, with 25 other experts.
