This year’s keynote speaker, Denise Pope, Ph.D., will talk about "Striving for Balance: Strategies to raise resilient kids in a fast-paced world." 
Denise Pope, Ph.D., is a Senior Lecturer at the Stanford University School of Education. For the past fourteen years, she has specialized in student engagement, curriculum studies, qualitative research methods, and service learning. She is co-founder of Challenge Success, a research and intervention project that provides schools and families the tools they need to raise healthy, motivated students.  She lectures nationally on parenting techniques and pedagogical strategies to increase student well-being, engagement with learning, and integrity.  
After the keynote presentation, participants will have the opportunity to attend their choice of a morning and an afternoon small-group seminar, focusing on a variety of current parenting topics. Detailed descriptions of the seminars are on the registration page and can also be found here.
$45 registration includes the keynote, two seminars, continental breakfast, and lunch. 
I've heard Denise speak many times and highly recommend going to this conference to hear her message.  I've taken her parenting class at Stanford, I believe in Challenge Success and what they promote about reducing student stress and finding family balance.  If you can't attend for the whole day, but can be there for her keynote address, please do so!
