MORE for YOU! Check it out.
With the epidemic of loneliness among adults, the mental health crisis among teens, and the general divisiveness in our country and our world, the work of teaching children to build strong and caring relationships has never felt more urgent.
I’m always thinking about ways to offer you useful information about children’s feelings and friendships. Starting this month, I’ll be providing a monthly featured webinar AT NO ADDITIONAL COST for paid subscribers.
Scroll down to see this month’s featured webinar–free for paid subscribers!
For FREE subscribers
I’m deeply committed to offering the Kids Ask Dr. Friendtastic weekly podcast for free. Each 5-minute episode features an audio recording of a question about friendship from a child plus a practical and thought-provoking answer, as well as a transcript and discussion questions. Check out past episodes HERE or on your favorite podcast app.
I’ll also send free subscribers at least one article for parents per month.
For PAID subscribers
Paid subscribers get the free weekly podcast on Saturdays, articles or videos for parents on Wednesdays, as well as access to the full archive. PLUS, starting this month, paid subscribers will receive a live or recorded featured workshop EACH MONTH at no additional cost!
The featured workshop will be available from the first Wednesday to the end of that month. For only $7 a month or $70 a year, this is a bargain. (If you’re not a paid subscriber, you can purchase individual featured workshops.)
Featured workshops are entertaining and also offer practical, research-based tips you can use immediately to support your child's social and emotional development. They draw from my knowledge as a clinical psychologist and author of nine traditionally published books about children’s feelings and friendships.
I have lots of great new topics coming up in 2024, including Myths and Truths About Resilience in Children and Families and Raising Kind Kids, as well as Q&A sessions.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get the strategies you need to support your child and family.
For ALL-ACCESS subscribers
You can also sign up for an ALL-ACCESS subscription, which will get you everything in the paid subscription plus access to ALL live and recorded workshops (not just the featured one) for a full year (instead of just a month). If you want to dive into the full set of resources for helping your child understand and cope with feelings and build caring friendships, this is the subscription plan for you!
I’ll be adding more workshops regularly, so your all-access subscription will become more valuable over time.
And here it is: This month’s FEATURED WORKSHOP recording
