Dear Parents,

Congratulations to the Class of 2020 ! It has been exciting to see all the yard signs, posters, balloons, and car parades in celebration of our talented graduates.

This summer, due to the popularity of the Parent Education Webinar Series, we plan to offer occasional virtual events (online). Look for details in this newsletter!

We kick off the new Parent Education Summer Series with a presentation by Margo Thienemann, MD , Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist, Stanford Children's Health:
How Can Parents Help? Anxiety in Children and Teens ( June 17, Online ).

While this is a standalone event, Dr. Thienemann's webinar is intended as a follow-up to our livestream screening of ANGST: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety .

The Parent Education Series is pleased to co-sponsor a group of national experts (authors, educators, and neuroscientists) offering a special nine-week summer Masterclass series, Parenting in Place . Click here for more information.

Please take advantage our  Video Library, available on our  YouTube   and  Vimeo channels. You can also stay connected via social media - Instagram   and  Facebook - with new posts daily!

Recent videos feature presentations by Alnardo Martinez, Child Mind Institute (Mantenar la Calma Durante el COVID-19 ) and Tiffany Hoang, CircleUp Education ( Diversity & Bias in Schools ).

NEW! We are thrilled to introduce our nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, The Parent Venture,

TPV's goal is to provide more high-quality, evidence-based parent education programming, while extending the reach of The Parent Education Series to a broader range of families and communities.

Wishing you all a happy, safe, and healthy summer!
