Parent Workshops: Reflect, Share, Learn, and Grow
I offer presentations, half-day workshops, and whole-day workshops that can be customized to meet the needs of your audience. Photos at the bottom of this page are from my talk at the UCLA Family Commons in December 2011.
Topics can include:
- How to confidently help your child succeed in school...and life.
- Raising a 21st century child: How to parent effectively in the age of computers, video games, and phones.
- Helping your child develop analytical, creative, social & emotional, and practical intelligences.
- What do our best educators know that parents should know?
Testimonials from Parents:
Teach Your Kids to Think workshops are more than professional development for parents. They are an avenue for growth that opens a door to seeing what's possible—namely, that ALL kids can learn to think and think better, regardless of learning style, personality type, gender, etc. A great strength in what Maria offers is that ALL families, regardless of style, can adapt and use the strategies and tools in ways that work for them.

The Teach Your Kids to Think workshops promote the important idea that kids are intelligent in many ways, only some of which involve schoolwork. This crucial idea is made real with simple, positive strategies for helping kids develop social, emotional, creative, and practical life skills. Thanks in part to what I learned in the workshops, my kids think through problems more effectively, plan more carefully, and are more self-sufficient.
