  • Communication 101 Kids Zero to Ten

    Life Skill – Communication

    Even before babies are born they are learning to communicate and connect with others. Advanced interpersonal communication skills increase children’s capacity for creating healthy, relationships with friends, family and colleagues. Tragically – few receive formal education. P20 Early Childhood Thought Leaders turn the tide by promoting a proactive educational approach for this critical phase of education.

  • Modern Families

    Life Skill – Communication

    Today’s families are spectacularly diverse. This provides unique opportunities for parents, children and the societies they form to grow in sensitivity, wisdom and compassion. P20 Modern Family Thought Leaders illuminate these by speaking in-depth to both traditional and non-traditional branches of modern family trees.  Their primary goal is expanding the variety of tools Life Skills Educators access to nurture the construction of relationships where children and parents “thrive”.

  • No More Bullies

    Life Skill – Social Skills

    When a child has difficulty with math we say the math is difficult.  When children have difficulty communicating with other children we call the children difficult – or some other name.  P20 advocates abandoning name calling and embracing proactive education for all children in interpersonal communication and conflict resolution. Conflict Resolution Thought Leaders lead the discussion.

  • Teens: Endangered to Empowered
