Learn How to Keep Kids on Task in One of Our Upcoming Free Webinars

It’s a weird time to be a parent, isn’t it? Our normal 3-month vacation has been replaced with 6+ months out of the classroom for a strange mix of homeschooling, distance learning, and “vacation” time.

On one hand, you might feel pressure to make this a fun summer, even as your child deals with the disappointment of canceled plans, camps, and trips. On the other hand, you’re worried about keeping your child on-track academically so they’re ready for the next school year.

We hear you—and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

Throughout this summer and into the fall, Ann Dolin will be hosting weekly webinars with helpful tips, strategies, and support for parents of K-12 students.

We’ll talk about how to communicate effectively when your child gets frustrated, how to boost your child’s reading comprehension skills, and much more. This is the weekly pep talk you need to better navigate this strange summer and make it a positive time for your whole family!
