May 27 - Raising a Child Who Makes Good Choices: How Parents Can Promote Executive Functioning in Their Child.
We all want children to make good choices especially as they grow older and have to make more of those choices without our input. In this presentation, we will take parents through each stage of development and discuss how our parenting behaviors can lead to the development of brain structures that will help our children be able to evaluate consequences and overcome temptations. This presentation is geared for parents of children from birth through the teenage years.
