Raising Future Generations through Kindness and Compassion

As parents, we always want what is best for our children, but sometimes we don’t know where to start. Is your child having a hard time navigating life’s challenges? Join us during Stress Awareness Month as we explore ways you can equip your child to overcome stress and the positive impact kindness and compassion have on the brain. Learn evidence-based parenting techniques to help them develop resilience in the face of adversity.
