Maggie Dent: Ten Building Blocks to Resilience
Parent Educator | Host of Parental as Anything Podcast

Today’s modern world is more challenging than ever before, and it appears that many young people have fewer resources to deal with adversity than in previous generations. Research shows declining health and wellbeing with an increasing number of children and teens who are depressed, suicidal and engaging in maladaptive coping strategies such as substance abuse, aggression and anti-social behaviour. In this presentation, Maggie will share ten of the critical things that have a big impact on resilience, with a special focus on relationships and connectedness, why play matters, the importance of building life skills, and strengthening a child’s spirit with her usual humour and common-sense.

Michelle Mitchell: Helping Kids & Teens Form a Sturdy Sense of Self
Parenting Educator | Tweens and Teens Specialist

Confidence is that elusive quality that we wished that our kids had. Out of 1600 parents who recently completed Michelle’s parenting survey, 100% identified low self-esteem as one of their most pressing concerns. All noticed that their kids were pulling back rather than pushing forward – limiting or adapting themselves in fear of being laughed at, criticised or judged. In this presentation Michelle will talk about the science and practise of building sturdy self-esteem, and what to do when it wobbles. We will explore the role of social comparison and feedback and discover why our own journey is the most powerful narrative in their lives.
