Surviving the School Year: How Parents Can Navigate the Covid-19 Crisis

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Moms of the World Foundation announced Surviving the School Year, a half-day online event for parents on Saturday, November 21, 2020, 11:30am EST.  Tickets are $7.00. Presentations focus on what children need, what parents and what couples need.

Around the world parents and children are struggling with the new normal, while divorce rates are at an historic high along with violence toward women in their own homes. By Nov 1, 2020, 30 countries have closed all their K-12 schools, with many others with partial closures, leaving 572,325,061 K-12 students across the planet - 32.7% of all kids - at home.

Event agenda:
Surviving the School Year digs into moving from challenge to possibility, and from isolation to connection. Speakers include:

  • Esther Wojcicki, Author of the bestseller How to Raise Successful People;
    • Strategies for Maximizing your Child’s Learning this Year
  • Dr. Shefali Tsabary, NYT Bestselling Author of A Conscious Parent
    • How to Keep Your Kids Resilient
  • Dr. Brenda Wade - world renowned TV psychologist, relationship & child development expert
    • Five Strategies Parents Need to Stay Sane this Year

World class musical guests singing as family bands including Richie “LaBamba” Rosenberg and The GuiGui Family Band.

Founders, Lily Safrani and Salim Ismail, say that “all of our parenting strategies evaporated this year such as school time, play-dates, carpooling, date nights and babysitting. These are some of the toughest challenges parents are facing. That’s why we created Surviving the School Year to support parents and help them brainstorm new strategies.”
