Informal Conversation Hour
For a completely customized event, participants (children or adults) can submit questions anonymously beforehand about a specific topic related to parenting or children’s feelings and friendships. The event organizer reads selected questions, and Dr. Kennedy-Moore answers them as part of an unscripted conversation. This is not a formal presentation, but rather an opportunity to explore a topic in a casual yet meaningful and safe way.
