Day 4

This morning we will hear about talking with teenagers and practice some of the questions and conversations that will be important in their care. Next you will learn about some tips and tricks for incorporating technology into your continued education and practice.

In the afternoon you will get the chance to hear the experts talk about all the advice you will soon be expected to share with parents.  Get ready to answer questions such as, “Should I sleep train my baby?”, “When and how do I toilet train?”, “Should I give my baby peanut butter?” and “What should I do about discipline?”  You will have the chance to discuss resources and recommendations that you have found…from Professional Society Guidelines to random weird websites.
