As parents, we know how hard it can be to find time to breathe, let alone find out more about the latest research and advice available on parenting. That’s why ParentFurther’s free webinars are designed for busy parents who are committed to learning what it takes to raise successful kids. Our 60-minute, expert-guided presentations focus on some of today’s most popular parenting topics and hot-button issues. You’ll leave educated and equipped with research-backed parenting tools to use in your everyday life.
Parents with children at all ages and stages as well as parenting professionals interested in learning more about hot topics in the parenting world.
Our experts, who range from professors to authors to youth-serving professionals, will address common parenting concerns such as body image and bullying. And you will have the opportunity to get your questions answered during the live webinar.
