Keynotes For Parents

We’ve become a nation of individuals, expecting children to raise themselves and somehow learn to be a responsible adult. Study after study of teens reveals that the one thing they wish their parents would do is spend time with them. Bea Joyner seeks to help parents understand that and to recognize that they are raising our future leaders and decision makers.

Bea Joyner conducts a highly-praised assortment of parenting seminars through the School District of Philadelphia and other organizations. She believes the optimum question to ask a parent is, “Would you want your child to make decisions about your health care or nursing home?”

Award winning author of "Don't Need No Soaps, My Life Is Soap Enough!" and "A Taste of Things To Come", Ms. Joyner speaks on parenting issues in a language that parents can immediately relate to:

“Imagine Life Differently” (the realities of the world our children face)

“Dead, Dying or Bleeding” (frustrations of parenting)

“Chewing Cream of Wheat” (the value and the frustrations of providing good nutrition)

“One Mice and the Fish Committed Suicide” (the value of chores and learning responsibility)

“Parents, Please Put Down Your Cell Phones” (communicating with your child)
