Adoption Learning Partners

We know that parenting isn’t always easy. We know that with the pandemic continuing, parents and families could benefit from resources and support. This past summer, ALP bundled together many of our most popular webinars in new, limited-edition packages and offered them at a significant discount.

We began with Parenting Playbook: A Guide to Behavior, Discipline and Attachment, a collection of three webinars featuring experts from Theraplay®. Next we added Effective Family Communication, bringing together two of our most popular webinars featuring Tina Feigal, coach, trainer and author. These packages proved so popular that we've extended their availability.

Now we've added our largest collection, Our Children 2020 Webinar Series,which bundles together all six of the panel discussions recently offered live via Zoom. This series was created to promote honest and open dialogue about the realities of raising a Black child in today's world. Held over a span of six months, panelists included parents, educators, professionals, and young people.

This limited-edition package bundles together all six webinars from the series for $99. This reflects more than a 30% discount vs. list price of purchasing the webinars and certificates a la carte. To purchase this or any other promotional package, please see the pulldown lists below. If you are interested in a single webinar or two, please see our Webinars Catalog. Regular pricing will apply. Here are the webinars in the Our Children 2020 package:

Raising Black Boys Revisited 2020: Panelists discuss the conversations they are having with their sons around the Black Lives Matter Movement and protests happening around the world. They share how they are explaining incidents of violence and racial tension in the news each day and how these conversations shape our young boys. We talk about fears parents have for their sons and what they tell their sons to ensure that they get home safely.

From Black Boys to Black Men: And the Fear that Brings: A panel of Generation Z and Millennial males share experiences from when they first realized that they were viewed differently than their White counterparts, their fears and the things that Black boys and young men must be mindful of as they go through life.

Can You Hear Me Now? Black Adults Speak!: We discuss the momentum of Black Lives Matter, the changing demographics of support for the equality of African Americans, the recent acknowledgment of Juneteenth, and the pros and cons of defunding the police.

Raising Black Girls 2020: Panelists share the discussions they are having with their daughters and the major concerns they face while raising them in today’s world. We tackle some very serious topics around safety and the emotional toll that the current state of the world has on Black girls.

The Color of Education: We address inequities in the education system and systemic biases will be addressed, such as why Black boys are more likely than any other group to be placed in Special Education classes.

Black Child-White Parent: What You Need to Know: We discuss how White parents’ privilege can extend to their child when they are together, but not when alone. We talk about what parents are doing to connect to their child’s culture and community and how parents respond to people who say “race is a non-issue”, “we don’t see color in this house” or “race doesn’t matter and all you need is love”.

Recorded Webinar

Black Child-White Parent

Black Child-White Parent

In this webinar, The Cradle’s Our Children initiative brings together a panel to share share how listening to the news about racial tension in America today affects them as a parent of a Black child.

We discuss how White parents’ privilege can extend to their child when they are together, but when alone, the privilege is gone for their child. We talk about what parents are doing to connect to their child’s culture and community and if they have significant relationships with adults within their child’s racial/ethnic groups. Finally, how parents respond to people who say “race is a non-issue”, “we don’t see color in this house” or “race doesn’t matter and all you need is love”.
