Parent Nation


Wednesday, October 5th at 7 p.m. via Zoom

Sponsored by CARES

Please join us Wednesday, October 5th at 7 p.m. via Zoom. This month’s focus topic is “Parent Nation” by author Dana Suskind, MD. We are very excited to welcome our guest speaker Yolie Flores, University of Chicago. Please join us for this topic in addition to our regular business of CARE.

What are the pillars of Parent Nation?

Raising Kids Shouldn’t Be A Lonely Endeavor

Parents don’t just contribute to society, they create it. They are raising the next generation of teachers and students, employers and employees, voters and leaders. They deserve more support.

Why Parents?

Parents (and all loving adults who care for children) have the power to lay a foundation for lifelong learning and success. But they need resources, time, and support to do so.

Why Now?

COVID-19 has been a powerful earthquake revealing just how shaky our nation’s infrastructure of support for parents, and, therefore, for children, really is.

Parent Nation Ideals

A Parent Nation reflects a society that celebrates, honors and makes space for the love and labor that go into raising future generations.

It ensures all parents have the information, resources and supports they need to optimally raise their children and give them the best chance to succeed in life. It is a society that strives for the following ideals:

Parents have Real Choices

They have the opportunity to choose how best to care for their children – from birth through childhood.

Children are Invested in Early

It’s understood that children’s potential does not begin on the first day of school, but on the first day of life. Public policies and investments are guided by the science of foundational brain development, which demonstrates the importance of the first three years of life.

Parental Wisdom is Honored

Their inherent leadership is respected and uplifted; their collective knowledge is recognized and supported.

Employers are Allies

They recognize that parents – especially parents with young children – need support and they need time with/for their children. They set workplace policies that support them.

Parents have Access to Supports

They receive resources, supports and services, starting at birth, that enable them to be their children’s best brain architect, first teacher, advocate, and coach, setting their children up for success in life.
