Obviously, Open Door for Parents is NOT psychotherapy. It's for educational purposes only about important topics facing families. The ideas mentioned by me or other community members may or may not be relevant for your particular situation.

I trust you to use your judgement about what makes sense for your child and your family and to consult your physician or a mental health provider, if needed, about very serious or complicated situations.

What parents are saying about this webinar

“We have found Dr. Kennedy-Moore's fantastic resources and webinars to be invaluable in helping us navigate our child's challenges, as well as our own reactions and expectations. No one taught us "how to parent," and when we listen to Dr. Kennedy-Moore's reflections, we often find ways to be more in tune with our child's developmental stage and perspectives. We have had tremendous success with employing her methods and suggestions and look forward to continuing to learn from her.”
