Join us for a free webinar with Lenore Skenazy, founder of the Free-Range Kids movement, and Tracy Tomasso, executive director of Let Grow, for a discussion about the opportunities presented by this unusual school year and an approaching summer that may look a little different without live camps and other standbys for your elementary-age children.
6/9, Your Quarantined Kid Is Growing in Amazing Ways (That You May Have to Squint to See)
with Lenore Skenazy and Tracy Tomasso
11 am PT / 12 pm MT / 1 pm CT / 2 pm ET
*When adults step back, kids step up: The magic of being preoccupied.
*What kids are enjoying most about this period, and how to make it last.
*How to stop seeing wasted time as wasted time.
*Playing doesn’t always look like total fun. That’s okay.
*Kids are seeds. They need water to grow. Free time is the water.
