Utah State University Extension is sponsoring the Utah Parenting Summit, a statewide virtual event held online from 6-8:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 8.
The summit will provide real-world solutions to common parenting challenges, with six live workshops presented by professionals nationwide. Topics include building a strong and healthy parent-child relationship, teaching values and behaviors, and correcting unwanted behavior, among others. Bonus pre-recorded workshops on self-care, picky eating, how to talk to your teen about sex and more will be available from the day of the event.
Keynote speaker Mackenzie Johnson, Family Wellbeing Humanities Specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, will speak on “Finding Joy in Our Parenting Journey.” She co-hosts “The Science of Parenting” podcast, where she shares research-based insights into effective parenting and stories about her own successes (and failures) as a mother.
According to Naomi Brower, extension teacher at USU in Weber County and event organizer, Johnson’s focus on providing reliable and practical parenting information, combined with her humor and insightful perspective, makes his presentations credible, engaging and inspiring.
“We are thrilled with this event,” Brower said. “We have a fantastic roster of speakers from across the state and beyond, and we’re confident parents who attend will walk away with information and skills to feel more confident about parenting. Given the challenges of the past two years, this information is more important than ever. »
Early bird registration is $10 per ticket until September 30. Tickets purchased after September 30 are $15. Tickets and additional information are available at bit.ly/2022ups.
