Parenting with a Good Heart (Online Course)

We’re excited to announce that a new course about overindulgence is now available: Parenting with a Good Heart Online Course.

Join author and researcher Jean Illsley Clarke, parent educator Lisa Krause, and a multidisciplinary team of University of Minnesota Extension educators in an exploration of overindulgence and how you can avoid it with children.

Overindulgence is giving a child too much of anything — money, space, time, energy, or attention — that can delay their development. Parents and caregivers overindulge children from a “good heart,” but it doesn’t help children or families in the long run. Parents can learn to wrap their good hearts with the strengths it takes to resist overindulging. Then they can teach their children how to be accountable and responsible for themselves and toward others.

Learn more about what this course covers, and see if it could be helpful for those you work with:
