There are no words to tell how following this conference since 2016 inspired and transformed my work with children, my professional and personal well-being, and my relationships. I couldn’t recommend this conference enough to any parent or educator wishing for a more peaceful and cooperative climate at home or at work! Every interview is filled with so much wisdom and evidence-based tips! Listening to only one of them can spark the most magical moments of connection and joyful cooperation – no kidding!
This event is part of a global movement of families and professionals who embrace a conscious and mindful approach to raising “high needs” kids, who may be anxious, spirited, or strong-willed.

This conference is known for bringing the heart and the science of parenting together. It’s where parents (teachers & therapists) of high needs kids go to get inspired and recharged.

Highlights for Bonus Day
Dr. Dan Siegel and Dr. Tina Payne Bryson speak about The Power of Showing Up. "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."
Dr. Peter Gray is president of the Alliance for Self-Directed Education.
His recent research focuses on the roles of play in human evolution and how children educate themselves, through play and exploration, when they are free to do so.
Kim John Payne speaks about Being At Your Best When Your Kids Are At Their Worst.
Kim says that when kids are angry that they are vulnerable and he shares a practice that we can use to break the cycle of action and reaction with our kids.
The first step is to look at our own trigger points.
Dr. Laura Markham speaks about tech, social media, emotional health, and resilience. She shares developmentally appropriate recommendations for screen time at various ages and stages, and suggestions for building resilience.
* * * Suzanne Tucker is the founder of Generation Mindful. * * *
Grounded in the science of social-emotional intelligence and positive discipline, Suzanne’s tools and tips make everyday life easier for kids and their parents. Bonus! Once you registered for the conference, you can access her Feelings Bingo for free (a value of $ 9 US). I highly recommend her Time-In Toolkit for every family, educator, teacher, and professionals working with children of all ages.
Tosha Schore is the “go-to” person when it comes to talking about boys and feelings. In this conversation, Tosha addresses why we shouldn’t tiptoe around boys and their feelings, what to do when a child doesn’t want to be comforted, and how to respond to rage. This is a great talk about the importance of listening. Bonus! When you register for the conference, click the link to the day 4 interviews, and find a free access coupon to her online course Parenting Boys Peacefully: A 10-Day Reconnect!
