Parenting SOS: Expert Answers to Your Burning Questions

Join us for our ParentEd Talks event on March 27, 2024, with Dr. Laura Kastner, an internationally recognized clinical psychologist.

Our kids are constantly changing. Advice for parents is, too. So, we’re phoning friends and calling in an expert. On Wednesday, March 27 at 3 p.m. CT, join Chicago Parent for an intimate hour of conversation with Dr. Laura Kastner, an internationally recognized clinical psychologist, author, researcher and veteran parent. We’ve selected a diverse group of parents to ask some of our most burning parenting questions and then we’ll open up Q&A to our live audience.

Ask us anything. No, really. From bullying, conflict with peers and/or classmates, temperament, behavioral problems, neurodiversity, LGBTQIA issues, racism, religious bias, political partisanship, school policies, homework, social exclusion and cell phone/media usage.

We know you’re busy. If you can’t attend the live event, you can still participate! After the event concludes, all registered attendees will be emailed a link to watch the recorded session at their convenience on any device. Attendees joining live will have the opportunity to partake in the interactive Q&A portion of the event.
