The first couple years of parenting might be hard, but seasoned parents know that later years can be even harder. To meet the needs of parents with kids of all ages, Parents Palooza presents an onsite Parenting Conference featuring expert speakers who can help guide parents through the myriad challenges the world’s toughest and most rewarding job can throw at them. Potty training, couponing basics and a crash course in raising toddlers will appeal to parents with younger children, while parents of school-aged children will not want to miss Parenting the Tech Generation, Bully Proof, and Peer Pressure Workshops.
In addition to many informative speakers, the Parenting Conference also features a Q & A with Deborah Gilboa, MD of AskDoctorG.com and Parenting Workshops from Parent Coach Atlanta. Children can learn a lot too at the Kids' Mini-Conference, which covers safety, homework, health and more in a fun, interactive manner.
