Featured Speakers on day 4:
Dr. John Duffy is author of The Available Parent and the brand new Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety. John draws on his years of clinical practice to help us better understand the complex world that our adolescent children live in, remind us to increase the emotional bank account with our kids, and show us how to dialogue with our (sometimes reluctant) teens.
Dr. Christine Carter, author of The Sweet Spot and Raising Happiness, has a unique perspective on how we can find fulfillment, success, and lasting joy in our busy lives. In this Interview, she talks with us about why this generation of teens is closer to their parents than in previous generations, the downsides of that closeness, but also the bigger upside. We asked her how to use Motivational Interviewing – a powerful technique that help us empower our teens and change their minds. She told us about using Behavioral Plans with teens – how they work and what happens if it falls apart. And we asked her about teens using marijuana. She explained why smoking pot has increased among adolescents, how it affects the adolescent brain, and how to talk to teens about the risks.
Dr. Deborah MacNamara is the author of the best selling book Rest, Play, Grow: Making Sense of Preschoolers and she has just published her first children’s picture book, The Sorry Plane, about respecting the feelings of children and supporting their emotional development. In this interview, she talks about the importance of attachment, relationship, independence, and how we can understand a child’s behavior (without letting our own emotions get in the way). Deborah helps make us make sense of our child’s development, and shares tools about how we can connect with our kids, and create a village around them in which they can thrive.
Tosha Schore is a parent coach, speaker and co-author with Hand in Hand Parenting founder, Patty Wipfler, of Listen: Five Simple Tools to Meet Your Everyday Parenting Challenges. She is committed to creating lasting change in families and in the world by supporting parents to care for themselves, connect with their boys deeply, set limits lovingly, and play wildly. She 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. with an emphasis on the importance of listening.

Parenting Boys Peacefully: A 10-Day Reconnect!
Keira Merkovsky is the Founder of Relationship Cubed. One of the things that she does in her work with parents is to help them get out of a cycle… maybe their child “doesn’t listen”, then the parent yells, then the child gets upset, on and on. Keira shares the 3 steps parents can use to get out of any unhelpful cycle starting with our own awareness, clarifying our values, and using tools to regulate our emotions.
