2020 Keynote speaker

Laura Markham
Parenting expert and author at Aha! Parenting

When your child misbehaves, figuring out how to respond can be a daunting process. In this keynote, you will learn how to connect with your children and help them manage their emotions. When you parent with healthy limits, empathy and clear communication, you can help your child develop self-discipline and increase cooperation.

Dr. Laura Markham is the author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids: How to Stop Yelling and Start Connecting, Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings: How to Stop the Fighting and Raise Friends for Life, and her latest book, The Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids Workbook: Using mindfulness and connection to raise resilient, joyful children and rediscover your love of parenting.

Dr. Laura earned her PhD in clinical psychology at Columbia University and has worked as a parenting coach with countless families across the world. Over 130,000 moms and dads enjoy Dr. Laura’s free weekly coaching posts via email. You can sign up at her website, AhaParenting.com, which serves up Aha! Moments for parents of babies through teens. Dr. Laura’s aspiration is to change the world, one child at a time, by supporting parents. She is a proud mother of two thriving young adults who were raised with her peaceful parenting approach, and she lives with her husband in New York.
