Anxious Parents, Anxious Kids: Parenting Tips From the ‘World’s Worst Mom’

Calendar/Event Details

In this ParentEd Talks event, we welcome phenomenal speaker and author Lenore Skenazy.

It’s time to change the way we look at obstacles and stop making assumptions that our kids are incapable of clearing their own path in life. Join author, columnist, blogger and reality TV show host Lenore Skenazy, aka “The World’s Worst Mom,” for a talk laced with humor, wit and the unvarnished truth: Your kids can be independent. Skenazy will share simple but powerful ways anxious parents can counteract the urge to overprotect their children, move away from fear-based parenting, and give their bubble-wrapped children the freedom to develop confidence and resilience the natural way: through unstructured, child-directed play.

Be entered for a chance to win an Amazon gift card! As a thank-you, we will give away one $100 Amazon gift card after each ParentEd Talks event in the series.
