Webinars provide a powerful technological resource to connect with people around the world who care about the education and social-emotional development of children.
We partner with developmental and social-emotional experts who provide information, resources, tips, support to strengthen and build the capabilities of adults involved in influencing children.
At M.P. Foundation, our webinars offer value on a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to):
ENHANCING AND PARENTING EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
Draw on your own parental expertise and style, and guide you in nurturing your child’s ability to make connections between their thoughts and feelings by defining Emotional Intelligence, and understanding how to help your child build upon their emotional intelligence!
JOURNEY THROUGH SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT AT SCHOOL
For a child to develop: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Decision Making. Without these skills, children are at a higher risk for mental, behavioral and developmental disorders. The latest statistics from the CDC show that 1 in 7 children (ages 2-8-years old) have a mental, behavioral or developmental disorder.
PARENTING AND SELF CARE
Our roles as parents are multi-faceted and go well beyond providing for our children’s basic needs for shelter, food, and education. We play a crucial role in helping our children regulate their emotions which requires a lot of self-control and the ability to regulate our own emotions. Learn to be a calm, loving and empathetic parent and how you can take good care of yourself!
RESPONSIVE, SECURE AND NURTURING RELATIONSHIPS
Children respond to adults who believe in them. Learn how you can be more responsive to the needs of children, more encouraging, uplifting, and motivating with real, practical applications from real life.
BRAIN DEVELOPMENT & EARLY YEARS
Brain development occurs at a rapid pace during the earliest years of life. In fact, by the time a child is 5, over 90% of brain development has finished. Discover the most effective ways to stimulate neural development so children can excel right from the start!
TRANSITIONS AND WHAT TO EXPECT
With the right support, children can learn to change gears without whining and tantrums. Many children struggle with transitions, which are common triggers for behaviors. There are many ways parents and teachers can help kids have an easier time with transitions — and be able to behave better—but it may take a little experimentation to find out what clicks with each particular child.
IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP
Sleep is crucial for people of all ages, not just children. However, children require more quality sleep for their body and brain. We discuss ways to promote a healthier and more restless night’s sleep for children of all ages (and how parents can finally enjoy some much-needed shuteye for themselves)!
NUTRITION, HEALTH & FITNESS
Research notes that nutrition is vital for early development years. Exercise is also crucial for health and well-being, not just as we get older, but for young kiddos, too. Learn about nutrition, health, and fitness, share your own insights, and be a part of a community that truly cares for youth today.
PARENTS AS PARTNERS FOR SUCCESS
When schools treat parents as partners in education, children have the greatest opportunity for success in their community (Wood, 2011, p.98). Discover ways to bridge the gap between school education and parental involvement.
CHALLENGING BEHAVIORS & POSITIVE DISCIPLINE
Dealing with temper tantrums, selfishness, and discipline is rarely ever easy. Learn the best strategies to use, how and which behaviors to ignore, and the most effective and positive forms of discipline that help children learn while feeling safe, comfortable, and confident.
TECHNOLOGY IN EARLY YEARS
Smartphones, tablets, and TV can all be great assets, when used properly and in moderation. Unfortunately in too many homes and schools, screens are replacing personal interaction. Join the conversation and learn about how technology can be beneficial and ways to balance it in your world.
ENRICHMENT & ITS BENEFITS
Creative arts -from music to painting and beyond- are integral to early childhood development. Gain insight into how this plays such an important role and how it helps to enhance cognitive, emotional, and psychomotor pathways of the brain.

MANAGING & HANDLING CHALLENGING BEHAVIORS
Most parents feel pressured to have well-behaved children. The pressure comes from a well-meaning family, teachers, and judgmental stares from strangers. The pressure heightens when our children have difficult behavioral habits with which we have yet to find a way to cope.
