Parent Education Speakers

  • Every year, Foothill Country Day School hosts speakers who share their expertise and provide important insights on a variety of topics of interest to parents of K-8 students. Previous speakers have included psychologist and author Dr. Wendy Mogel, author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee and The Blessing of a B Minus, and Dr. Robin Berman, a psychiatrist and author, who shared her book Permission to Parent with the audience, and Dr. Jean Twenge, author of iGen:Why Today's Super-Connected Kids are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy--and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood, and Jen Cote, M.A., Program Director of ChallengeSuccess, a program out of Stanford University's Graduate School of Education.  

    This year we will Zoom Into the School Year with Parent Tech Workshops for Lower School families. These grade-specific classes will help parents can learn how to best support their students in this new digital learning environment. Check the flyer below for your grade's time.
