Parenting with Less Stress and More Success

Saint Michael’s Presents:

Family Matters: Raising Healthy Children in Challenging Times

Robert Evans, Ed.D

There is no harder job than being a parent. Almost nothing else touches so much of a person so deeply—or so unpredictably—and there is no training for it. This was true pre-COVID, as the pace of life accelerated, media influences intensified, and the future grew less predictable. After two years of pandemic, many parents find it even harder to be confident, to manage not just their children’s stress but their own. Dr. Evans will offer concrete suggestions to help.

Rob Evans is a psychologist, former high school and preschool teacher, and former child and family therapist. He has consulted to more than 1,700 schools in the U.S. and internationally, and spoken to hundreds of parent groups. His presentations are known for their lively wit and plain talk.

We came to St. Michael’s for two reasons – the incredible arts programs that the school has, and for Phil Tutino.  Too many schools are cutting back on their arts programs, but St. Michael’s understands the value of balancing rigorous academic study with a foundation in the arts. This has

The concept of a St. Michael’s community is a big draw for me. It’s not just a place to drop off your kids for the day, it’s also the center of the social universe for our family.

7th Grade Parent

From the first day of school to the last day of school, my child is HAPPY to go to school. I can remember a project they did in 5th grade about food trucks. The class was presenting in early June, and my son bounced out of bed on presentation day.
