Today, perhaps more than ever, we benefit from hearing messages of hope—messages that focus on strengths, confidence, mindfulness, and resilience.

In partnership with Beech Acres Parenting Center and Children, Inc., we are presenting and bringing luminaries in the field of positive psychology to Cincinnati to share the best in current, applied science for building positive parenting capacities. The series is designed for parents and other caring adults who want to nurture positivity in children for immediate and life-long impact.

This global author series—Raising Positive Children—will run from January 2018 to April 2018. Four highly-regarded international experts will deliver an evening lecture at Mayerson Academy’s Interactive Learning Center (ILC) with an opportunity for book-signing after the program.

We are pleased to welcome authors Lea Waters, Louisa Jewell, Ryan Niemiec, and Lucy Hone beginning in January.

  1. January 11, 2018: An Evening with Lea Waters: Raising Strong Children
  2. February 15, 2018: An Evening with Louisa Jewell: Raising Confident Children
  3. March 15, 2018: An Evening with Ryan Niemiec: Raising Mindful Children
  4. April 19, 2018: An Evening with Lucy Hone: Raising Resilient Children

All evenings of the #globalauthorseries will take place from 6:00-8:00 PM, at Mayerson Academy.

Ticket prices are $25 and tickets for the entire series or individual dates may be purchased through our event site, Raising Positive Children.

To encourage the strengths of kindness and love, “kindness” tickets may be purchased and donated to allow parents to attend who would otherwise not be able to do so due to financial constraints. Our partner organizations will distribute the donated tickets.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of the series or have any questions, please contact Beth D’Amico at
