Education for raising children today
Parent University is an annual parent and guardian education series for the entire Seattle community. Parent University offers virtual seminars throughout the year culminating in a half-day, in-person conference at the end of April on The Bush School campus. Each Parent University lecture features a relevant topic about raising children in today’s society. Previous topics have included childhood anxiety, citizenship, parenting to embrace diversity, equity and inclusion, learning differences, and digital safety.
In an effort to make parenting resources more accessible to families, all virtual Parent University events are free to the parent/guardian community, but please be sure to register in advance.

Each year, our children confront new challenges that keep parents/guardians eager to learn how best to support them. Bush’s Parent University is a constant in the Seattle parent education landscape. This event allows parents/guardians the opportunity to learn in community with others from experts in the fields of neurodiversity, teen mental health, effective communication, boundary-setting, and the college landscape among other topics that inform and support us in raising children to be healthy, compassionate, and ethical community members.
