There's more to learning than reading, writing, and arithmetic! Other skills are just as important to promoting achievement and fostering a love of learning. In our events for Chicagoland PTAs and other parent groups, we'll teach you about how to develop these skills in your children!
I love their pedagogy and the way that they seem to very student focused instead of business and revenue focused. Clearly parents were thirsty for this topic. I appreciated having both theory and case studies presented as well as concrete suggestions for fostering the growth mindset in family life.
Presentations for Parents
You may have heard about executive functioning, mindset, and motivation, but do you really know what they're all about - or what to do with them at home? And what about the testing process for college admissions and high school entrance? Downright intimidating. In our talks on these topics, we discuss the whats, whys, and hows so that you can apply practical strategies as soon as you get home! Click here to learn more about all of our presentation topics.
Executive Functioning Workshops
For a fun, interactive, and productive night out with your middle- or high-schooler, attend one of our executive functioning workshops! At these hands-on events for sixth through twelfth graders and their parents, we teach concrete strategies for organization, time management, and studying. You'll be amazed by the number of aha moments you experience during this workshop! Learn more here.
We'll work closely with you to customize a presentation or workshop for your group!
- Before the talk or workshop, one of our presenters will talk with you about your group's desired outcomes so that we can customize the presentation to your needs.
- We'll coordinate schedules to find a day and time that's convenient for you.
- We'll discuss the cost, time required, and content up front for a seamless delivery.
- You'll work closely with a coordinator who will answer any questions and address any concerns.
- After the event, we'll ask you and your group for feedback so that we can fine-tune for future audiences!

We contracted with NW to provide parenting presentations and skills workshops to our local youth. The staff were very high energy and well organized in their presentations to the community. I would definitely recommend them for a school, library or PTA sponsored workshop.
Your workshop was so helpful and relevant to us. Our staff hasn’t stopped referencing things we learned and we’ve already had the opportunity to utilize some of the skills and strategies you showed us during our programs. You were engaging and knowledgeable about executive functioning which made it easy to learn! Thank you so much.
The Executive Functioning workshop offered by Nurturing Wisdom was a wonderful experience. Both students and parents learned so much from the information and hands on experiences offered in the workshop.The feedback we received was amazing and we look forward to offer this great opportunity to our school community again this fall.
Nurturing Wisdom provided our teachers with useful, practical information and strategies to improve our students’ executive functioning skills. It was a pleasure to work with the staff at Nurturing Wisdom in planning this professional development opportunity.
Nurturing Wisdom has been a wonderful partner to our school. They have offered top notch test prep services and feedback that are on par with other popular sources I have worked with; and their executive functioning workshops have proved to be very useful to many of our students that need a little bit of extra help in that area. Whatever supplemental services we have collaborated on, they have proved to be worthwhile. I love their pedagogy and the way that they seem to very student focused instead of business and revenue focused.
