Conversations with Common Sense: Locking in Life Skills, Caring for Your Community, and Other Tips for a Productive Family Summer

Pre-pandemic, asking kids to help around the house amid busy school schedules might have fallen off the to-do list, but experts have always underscored the long-term benefits of teaching kids everyday responsibilities. Please join Conversations with Common Sense as we welcome bestselling author Catherine Newman and writer, community builder, and optimist Asha Dornfest as they discuss how to make this summer an inspiring and productive one for kids and families. Our speakers will help parents connect the dots between practicing everyday life skills and instilling in our kids a sense of community involvement—helping a neighbor, writing a congressperson, or working at a food bank.
