Wayne State Alumni Association is offering exclusive access to a range of online webinars. Join us for the next webinar, "Raising Thrivers: Parenting Tips & Tools to Help Kids Thrive in An Uncertain World".

Our kids are the smartest on record and the loneliest, most stressed, risk-averse, and depressed. We must rethink our parenting so they can thrive in an anxious, uncertain world. The good news is that thrivers are made, not born. In this thought-provoking webinar presented by internationally renowned educational psychologist Dr. Michele Borba, you’ll learn seven traits that science says matter most in happiness and success. You’ll learn how to help your child cope with everyday frustrations, solve problems, develop resourcefulness, bounce-back from failure, develop an optimistic spirit, and recognize their unique passion for increasing authentic confidence. This webinar offers tools to raise successful, self-reliant, and less pressured kids who thrive in school and life.
