Dr. Christine Carter – November 13th, 2012

Dr. Christine Carter of The Greater Good Science Center is author of Raising Happiness. She is known for bringing a scientific frame to her opinion-based parenting research. In our evening with her, she will be discussing her studies in psychology, sociology, and neuroscience of well-being, as well as teaching us “happiness habits” and other skills to foster a thriving, resilient, and compassionate society.

Rona Renner, RN – January 31, 2013

“Nurse Rona,” talk show host of Live365 Radio and ChildhoodMatters.com, will share with us her research talk entitled, “Was That Me Yelling?” In this discussion, we will explore the occasionally volatile relationships we have with our children and how to deal with controversy in more effective and productive ways.

Dr. Sara Gottfried – March 7, 2013

Dr. Gottfried is a Harvard-trained integrative physician, yoga teacher, mother, and author of the forthcoming book, The Hormone Cure. Dr. Gottfried will talk about “the stressed out family” and how stress impacts you and your family’s health. As an expert on adrenal health, she will enlighten us with simple and practical steps to make an immediate, positive impact on your health.

Common Sense Media – April 30, 2013

In our discussion, Common Sense Media will present the latest techniques and tools available for navigating the increasingly more treacherous waters of social media, both for our children and for ourselves. This is the nation’s largest membership organization dedicated to improving kids’ media lives, envisioned by Jim Steyer as an advocacy group similar to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. On their website, they post in-depth reviews of thousands of movies, websites, TV shows, digital apps, and music.
