- Child Development
Join Us: March Parent University - Navigating Friendships, Social Conflicts & Popularity
Social and emotional development is a hot topic for parents -- especially for those who empathize with their children and want to better understand how to support them in navigating relationships with their peers.
We're thrilled to host Speaker Rosalind Wiseman, the New York Times bestsellers Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends & Other Realities of Adolescence &Masterminds and Wingmen: Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World pulls back the curtain on what's really going on in boys and girls friendships and social hierarchies. She'll share how boys' and girls' social group dynamics influence their interactions and offer step-by-step advice on how to teach young people how to navigate these common yet complex situations. She’ll also explain why young people can be reluctant to ask for help and give common-sense suggestions to break through communication barriers and address:
- How do you get your child to talk to you?
- How can adults help young people navigate the pressure to keep up?
- How can Instagram & Snapchat affect your child's self-esteem and friendships?
