I love speaking to parent groups and to women's groups, facilitating dialogue on topics related to resilience. Parents and women have an incredible knowledge base, already, but rarely give themselves credit where credit is due! You already have everything you need to succeed, but maybe a little guidance, a sprinkle of motivation and some practical tips could help you on your way. That's where I come in!
I also enjoy working with school staff, for when parents and schools work together to foster environments that cultivate resilience, children thrive! How can you create a bridge of connection between home and school? What can schools do to support students in taking risks and developing a growth mindset? How can parents build upon this skill building at home? Let me help your teaching community develop a school wide goal of raising calm, confident children and let's invite parents to participate in the conversation.
