Bright Horizons, in conjunction with Families and Work Institute invites you to join Ellen Galinsky for our next parent webinar about the skills adults and children need in order to succeed in the 21st century.

Mind in the Making: Executive Function and the Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs Tuesday, May 7, 2013 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. EDT. To register for this webinar, please click here to sign up

For over a decade, Ms. Galinsky has worked with top researchers from across the country, filming their experiments and studying their results demonstrating how we learn best. In her recently released highly acclaimed best selling book, Mind in the Making (Harper Collins 2010), she identifies seven Life Skills that are essential to success—in school, the workforce and in life.

During the webinar, Ellen will outline the meaning and importance of Executive Functions of the brain and why they underlie Life Skills, describe several essential Life Skills, as well as provide parents with easy everyday things they can do to foster these Life Skills in their children and themselves. Attendees will see videos of researchers “in action” sharing studies on the topic, and gain the ability to apply what is presented not only to parenting techniques but adult learning as well.
