Title: Strategic Parenting: Embracing Hard Discussions to Enrich Children’s Development
Three developmental psychologists will discuss common parenting challenges with constructive strategies to support children’s social, cognitive, and emotional adjustment. Dr. Shayla Holub will share strategies for how to turn children’s sometimes candid observations about what others look like into meaningful conversations about accepting others and celebrating differences. Next, Dr. Candice Mills will discuss how to handle tricky and sometimes exhausting questions from children, with a focus on ways to help children develop their critical thinking skills. Finally, Dr. Jackie Nelson will close with a discussion on children’s negative emotions and how parents can navigate those big feelings, even when they occur in the context of parent-child conflict.
The United Way of Metropolitan Dallas is a sponsor for this lecture.
