Parenting in the time of the coronavirus? This is NOT what we signed up for. It's exhausting trying to do all of the things, all the time. These days as parents, we're all just trying to survive, let alone thrive.

There's a better way. Find out how to focus on what really matters, do more with less and forget the rest.

Join ParentMap for a free virtual ParentEd Talk with best-selling author and speaker Dan Siegel, M.D. Learn the secrets of raising confident, compassionate and connected kids from his new critically acclaimed book, “The Power of Showing Up: How Parental Presence Shapes Who Our Kids Become and How Their Brains Get Wired.” Sometimes, all you have to do is show up.

“Show up” and learn:

  • How to unplug so you can tune in to your child
  • How to balance all the competing priorities in your day and still carve out family time
  • How to talk (and listen) to kids about tough topics without scaring them

And so much more!

About “The Power of Showing Up”

What’s the one thing a parent can do to make the most difference in the long run? The research is clear: Show up! In their latest book, best-selling authors Dan Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson explain what this means over the course of childhood.

One of the very best scientific predictors for how any child turns out — in terms of happiness, academic success, leadership skills and meaningful relationships — is whether at least one adult in their life has consistently shown up for them. In an uncertain time, with competing demands and digital distractions, showing up for your child might sound like a tall order. But as Siegel and Bryson reassuringly explain, it doesn’t take a lot of time, energy or money. Instead, showing up means offering a quality of presence. And it’s simple to provide once you understand the four building blocks of a child’s healthy development.
