Parenting with Awareness, Purpose, and Intention with Dr. Dan Peters
Parenting is hard. We are bombarded continually with messages that create fear and worry about our children’s future. Will they be able to take care of themselves? Will they make the elite team? Will they get into a good college? Will they be successful? We all want the best for our children and spend considerable time engaging in activities and resources to meet this goal. This talk will address the importance of a parent’s awareness about themselves as key to raising healthy, engaged, and happy children. By being engaged in one’s own life, being clear about where you came from, and being aware of what you want to pass on to your children, you can parent with purpose, which is aligned with your goals for your child.

Dan Peters, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist who has devoted his career to helping children, adolescents and families engage in life so that they can realize their full potential. Dr. Peters is co-founder and Executive Director of the Summit Center in California, host of the Parent Footprint with Dr. Dan podcast, and author of several books about parenting.
