TED Talks for Parents TED Talks for Parents

We are continuing our popular Sunday Morning TED Talk series, this year taking the time to broaden our scope beyond parenting into talking about relationships in a digital age.

Typically held on the first Sunday of the month, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., TED Talks gatherings offer parents the opportunity to come together for a time of connection and conversation with one another.

Our typical gathering schedule looks like this:

  • Twenty minutes of socializing and meeting other parents
  • Twenty minutes of watching a TED Talk.
  • Twenty minutes in small groups discussing themes and ideas from the talk using a handout with prepared questions

Come join us for some great conversation!
