Common Ground Speaker: Laura Markham, PhD


Based on the latest research on brain development and clinical experience, Dr. Laura Markham will share how fostering an emotional connection with your child creates real and lasting change. When you have that vital connection, you can cultivate a parenting style that doesn’t resort to threats, bribes, nagging or punishment. Parents know there is no one-size-fits-all approach to raising children as they move through the various developmental stages. Each stage comes with its own unique set of challenges and opportunities. Dr. Markham will explain the crucial necessity to always stay calm, parent with healthy limits, and provide empathy and clear communication to raise a self-disciplined child. Parents will learn to grow and evolve alongside their children’s own growth and development.

Dr. Laura Markham trained as a clinical psychologist. She is the author of the highly successful Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids and Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings, and the founding editor of
