How to Parent when the Brain Rules

March 3 - 7:00 p.m. 9:00 p.m 
Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School, Auditorium, 149 Berrigan Drive​

Most of us have no idea what’s really going on inside our heads - or our children’s heads. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget—and so important to repeat new knowledge?

John Antonetti takes us on a journey through the latest brain research in a humorous, interactive workshop that integrates strategy, thinking, and engagement — truly a three-dimensional approach to look at what makes each of our children unique. John integrates the latest research of John Medina’s Brain Rules with action research from 17,000 classrooms across North America. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You may leave with a new understanding of your child (as well as yourself).
