Strength-based Strategies for Cultivating Confident Children


Research shows that using a strength-based parenting approach helps children develop a positive self-concept, build confidence, and improves parent-child relationships.

Join PJ Library of Greater MetroWest NJ for an interactive session with Lynn T. Ochs that will help you flip your parenting script from “what is wrong” to “what is strong” and gain practical ideas and strategies to get started on your journey to building self-confident children.

Best for parents with young children, preschool through elementary, but all are welcome!


Lynn T. Ochs, M.Ed., Chief Program Officer at Mayerson Academy is a lifelong educator and recognized leader in the field of education. Before joining Mayerson Academy, she cofounded the strength-based educational program Thriving Learning Communities™ and taught in schools throughout the country. As a parent of three and grandparent to six, Ochs is passionate about providing innovative solutions that ensure children, their families, and educators have the knowledge, tools, and resources to thrive in today’s challenging world.
