Parenting in the New Millennium: Fostering intrinsic motivation, resilience, and accountability in our children

Parenting is hard. We care so much. There is so much uncertainty and so many pressures. Sometimes it is scary, and it feels impossible to know what to do. In this workshop, Jeff Waller the Co-Founder of 7 Mindsets will help parents focus on what is most important for their children to succeed by providing 5 key strategies that can begin to transform the potential of a child’s life.

Parents will learn to help their children:

  • Build their intrinsic motivation and focus
  • Deal effectively with challenge, adversity, and trauma
  • Take accountability and learn to self-advocate
