2018 empowHER parent session
Alissa Marquess, mom of three and author of "Bounceback Parenting," will help you see the challenges in parenting as opportunities for growth and building resilience. You’ll discover why connection — not perfection — wins the day, and you’ll be relieved to find you can be a work in progress and still be a fantastic parent to your kids.
Alissa calls herself a "work in progress" as a parent. "Over time I discovered I could enjoy parenting more and develops strong bonds with my kids by shifting my thinking. I began to develop a growth mindset about parenting – realizing that as parents we’re always learning. There’s no shame in not knowing the answer yet, and the only thing you want to avoid is closing yourself off to growth. I like to say: I am a work in progress, I am home."
Parents and guardians who register to stay for Friday evening's session will receive a signed copy of Alissa's book.
