Recommended to us by one of our member nannies (Nicole, we see you!) who attends every year, this conference is just the kind of thing we love to attend because it is evidence and science based to provide data driven parenting techniques and information.

The mission statement of the conference is

Using Brain Science and Connection to Raise Resilient and Motivated Kids

and features five days of experts providing us with their wisdom.

Here is the pitch that Happy Family makes for what you will learn in the conference:


  • You are interested in the science of parenting. You’re curious about what attachment, emotional intelligence, psychology, and brain science can tell us about how to raise kids.
  • You have kids that are more sensitive, strong-willed, bright, or spirited than others (and sometimes the advice in “traditional” parenting sources just doesn’t work for your child).
  • You want to raise kids who are resilient and empowered in the face of anxiety, depression, screens, trauma, bullies, the pandemic, racial inequality, and climate change.
  • You strive to use effective alternatives to threats and punishment and want to address challenging behaviors with connection and communication (without passing on your own baggage).

Join over 100 thousand parents, professionals, researchers, and authors sharing the science of parenting.

Get practical tools to make everyday family life easier.

For North Carolina Professional Association of Nannies supporting members:

We will be hosting a follow-up debrief day to go over what the key take-aways were from the conference, and to compare notes with one another (we cannot all manage to attend every session, after all). If you aren’t a supporting member and want to attend the study session, get your membership now!

Once you have signed up or in, you can access the connection details by clicking on the Membership menu item and selecting Members Only Content from the list of options.

We look forward to seeing everyone at one (or both) of these opportunities!
