Raising Caring and Respectful Children: Parenting in the Post-Election Climate.
It doesn't matter on which side of the fence you sit, the one thing we can all agree upon is that our recent election has been the most uncivil in modern history.
Rick Weissbourd, of

Dr.. Weissbourd will help parents guide children in:
-Making caring for others a priority
-Developing empathy, including those different from them
-Challenging bias constructively
Dr. Richard Weissbourd, author of the book, The Parents We Mean To Be, is a psychologist and senior lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Kennedy School and a Founder of Making Caring Common. Dr. Weissbourd's work focuses on how parents can raise more caring and ethical children.
