How to Raise Teens You Want to Spend Time With: Science-based Strategies for Responsible, Respectful Kids

Virtual Event

This award-winning science journalist found a huge area being ignored in the realm of parenting advice: how to make sure kids don’t grow up to be bratty, entitled or spoiled, especially when the message on social media is often that being selfish, obnoxious or cruel are acceptable behaviors.

Young people have the capacity for great empathy and understanding, but how do we nurture our children to be considerate, respectful and ethical both inside and outside the home?

Discover a deeply researched, evidence-based template that provides a fresh—often surprising—perspective on parenting issues. Melinda Wenner Moyer will provide scientifically-based (and humorous) actionable strategies to help parents instill the characteristics of honesty, generosity, and compassion, thus producing kids who make the world a better place… and creating young people we want to hang out with.

Her first book “How to Raise Kids” was published in July 2021 and won a gold medal in the 2022 Living Now Book Awards.
