It can feel impossible to find a healthy balance between raising a human and being a human. But Julie Morgenstern offers parents remarkably practical strategies that organize the seemingly infinite job of being a parent into a manageable set of responsibilities that are relevant from cradle to college. Her clear, nonjudgmental approach will help you see what you’re doing well, where you could be doing better and how even small changes in your own behavior can yield big results. Based on her forthcoming book, TIME TO PARENT, this presentation will empower you to juggle the priorities of the parenting years, as you create regular quality time with your kids -- and for yourself.
Julie’s approach is based on 30 years of field work, coaching individuals and families around the world, and a deep understanding of the leading scientific research on human development. Attendees will learn simple strategies to:
Stay present and focused, whether you’re playing with your kids, enjoying a meal with your significant other, or tackling a big work project.
Share the joys and burdens of running a household by engaging in honest dialogues your spouse and children and learning new ways to divvy up the work.
Get more out of short periods of time by seeing how 5-15 minutes of undivided attention can be exactly what your child needs, and make you feel whole.
Give yourself permission to take personal time without feeling guilty, and the science and case studies that show how important self-care is and how to make time for it.
For children, regular quality time with a parent is as important to their development as food or shelter. TIME TO PARENT empowers moms and dads to celebrate what they are doing well and learn simple strategies to improve in the areas where they fall short.
Julie’s Excited to Share!
Whether we have children ourselves or we consult or coach our clients that have children, we’d benefit from Julie’s expert perspective. Julie states: "I have a big history of book events in DC, which has included speaking at the National Book Festival with the launch of my last book SHED Your Stuff, Change Your Life. It was a huge turnout, and it made me feel very connected to readers in Washington DC. This time around, having the chance to speak with families and to help them better organize their lives so that they can have quality time with their kids and for themselves is something I am very much looking forward to sharing." We are excited to hear her topic development and take away points for our clients and to implement in our own lives as productivity professionals.
“Julie is an amazing motivational speaker! I admire her ability to present in large group settings, along side celebrities and in front of the camera. This book launch will not just be her reading a paragraph from her book, but she will inspire us to be the best parents we can be.” - NAPO-WDC Member
