Award-winning author to speak on new book ‘Kids Pick Up on Everything: How Parental Stress is Toxic to Kids’

As parents, we all worry about toxins in food or the air. In fact, parental stress is a much bigger threat to our children’s health, because kids pick up on everything. The good news is that we can reverse the harm done. If parents socialize and have more fun, it actually improves our children’s wellbeing on a cellular level.

Come hear award-winning author David Code explain the medical research showing how parental stress is a major risk factor in today’s epidemic of child health problems. As featured on CBS, Fox, the New York Times, Huffington Post, and Wall Street Journal, David Code is an Episcopal priest who draws from the latest research in neuroscience and his study of families around the world to offer practical tools that bring greater simplicity and joy to parenting.

WeCare San Diego will present two lectures by David Code on Tuesday, Jan. 22. He will talk about his new book “Kids Pick Up on Everything: How Parental Stress is Toxic to Kids.” Both events are free and open to the public.

The first lecture will be held at La Jolla Country Day School, 9490 Genesee Avenue in La Jolla.  A parent social will begin at 9:30 a.m., followed by the lecture at 10 a.m. Parking on campus is very limited. Please follow the signs to nearby paid parking at UCSD.

The second talk will be held at Pacific Ridge School, 6269 El Fuerte Street in Carlsbad.  The parent social will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by the lecture at 7 p.m. Parking is available on campus; please carpool if possible.
