This spring, CEE parent and author Eve Rodsky
met with families to share her Fair Play
principles, which help us achieve success as our homes and the relationships become our most important organization while we practice social distancing and quarantine.
Author and speaker Julie Lythcott-Haims
offered her top tips for parents during the pandemic. She is the New York Times bestselling author of the anti-helicopter parenting manifesto How to Raise an Adult
. Her TED Talk
on the subject was one of the top talks of 2016, and in 2020, she became a regular correspondent with CBS This Morning on parenting. Her second book is the critically-acclaimed and award-winning prose poetry memoir Real American
, which illustrates her experience with racism and her journey toward self-acceptance.
Tina Payne Bryson and Lori Gottlieb shared their insights for families as they navigate the new Covid-19 normal, including balancing being a parent, employee, teacher, cook, spouse, and business owner and ways to support your and your children’s mental health.
Bryson is the author of the New York Times bestsellers No Drama Discipline and The Whole Brain Child. She is also the founder of The Center for Connection, a multi-disciplinary clinical practice in Southern California. Gottlieb is a therapist, the author of the New York Times bestseller Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, and a contributing editor and “Dear Therapist” columnist at The Atlantic.
In June, CEE’s Director of Innovation, Matt Arguello, partnered with Common Sense Media to present a session on Managing Screen Time, Gaming, and Connecting Online During Quarantine to help parents and children find a balance while learning from home.
