Parents Association Education Committee Series: Brainy Parenting

  • Breck School - West Board Room (above the lower school library.) 123 Ottawa Avenue North Golden Valley, MN, 55422 United States (map)

There is a lot of compelling neuroscience being reported these days and images of brain scans seem to be everywhere. The important question is -- What can help us in our parenting? What does understanding a concept like neuroplasticity, integration, variability, or hijacking do for our everyday lives as parents? Join us for a session led by Dr. Daisy Pellant, Director of the Peter Clark Center for Mind, Brain, and Education at Breck. The PCC has as its mission creating a bridge between research and practice for all students, faculty, and families. Understanding applicable research will help us develop excellence as students, teachers, and parents. As the parent of four spirited kids, aged 12-19, Daisy knows firsthand how a practical understanding of the brain has helped her parenting decisions day to day and she looks forward to opening the conversation with you.
