Paradigm Shift of P20 by Marlaine Cover
Life Skill – Digital Safety
Knowledge is power and never more so than with social media. P20 Digital Safety Thought Leaders discuss protecting children and their social security numbers from identity theft while connecting with them through technology. You won’t learn everything, that modifies daily, but you will hear the top threats and be inspired to encourage everyone to continue learning.
Thought Leaders: Tshaka Armstrong *Lead
Robin Sax, Kristie Bjorklund Davidson, Etel Leit
Life Skill – Finance
Managing money for the benefit of self and others is an essential life skill. Sadly, even fortunate children’s education can often be summed up in one word “allowance.” P20 Financial Literacy entrepreneurs provide creative ideas for enhancing the educational process and guiding all children on paths toward financial competency.
Thought Leaders: Lynne L. Finch *Lead
Bill Dwight, Anthony Delmedico, Etay Gafni, Arnie Benn

Life Skill – All of them!
Every single skill set on the Life Skills Report Card (Personal Care, Organizational, Respect for Self and Others, Communication and Social) is dramatically impacted by children’s emotional intelligence. But how many parents know how to effect change? P20 EQ Thought Leaders stimulate discussion by sharing their insights regarding proactive education of emotional intelligence.
Thought Leaders: Tara Kennedy-Kline *Lead
Dr. Rosina McAlpine, Sheryl Stoller, Dr.Roger Frame, Laura L. Brown, Diana Sterling
Life Skill – Communication
Even before babies are born they are learning to communicate and connect with others. Advanced interpersonal communication skills increase children’s capacity for creating healthy, relationships with friends, family and colleagues. Tragically – few receive formal education. P20 Early Childhood Thought Leaders turn the tide by promoting a proactive educational approach for this critical phase of education.
Thought Leaders: Dr. Rosina McAlpine *Lead
Dr. Yvonne Sum, Dr. Raelynn Maloney, Melissa Pazen, Susie Walton, Mark Romero
Life Skill – Organizational Skills
Strong organizational skills positively impact every aspect of children’s lives: school, sports, general schedule, relationships with others and self-esteem. An effective educational curriculum replaces discipline with inspiration. P2O Organizational Thought Leaders stimulate discussion by sharing their ideas for enhancing this vital educational process.
Thought Leaders: Mitzi Weinman *Lead
Deborah King, Dr. Shirin Sherkat, Dr. Yvonne Sum, Sherlyn Pang Luedtke, Roya Kravetz
Life Skill – Communication
Today’s families are spectacularly diverse. This provides unique opportunities for parents, children and the societies they form to grow in sensitivity, wisdom and compassion. P20 Modern Family Thought Leaders illuminate these by speaking in-depth to both traditional and non-traditional branches of modern family trees. Their primary goal is expanding the variety of tools Life Skills Educators access to nurture the construction of relationships where children and parents “thrive”.
Thought Leaders: Rhonda Sciortino*Lead
Dr. Jeannine Zoppi, Dr. Pilar Placone, Janet Bray Attwood, Jeff Everage, Diana Sterling
Saturday August 18
Life Skill – Social Skills
When a child has difficulty with math we say the math is difficult. When children have difficulty communicating with other children we call the children difficult – or some other name. P20 advocates abandoning name calling and embracing proactive education for all children in interpersonal communication and conflict resolution. Conflict Resolution Thought Leaders lead the discussion.
Thought Leaders: Devin C. Hughes *Lead
Dr. Samantha Madosingh, Dr. Deborah Gilboa, Catherine Mattice, Dr. Donna Volpitta, Dione Becker
Life Skill – Personal Care
Today’s teens face unprecedented pressures and novel learning curves. The result is both teens and their parents feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated. P20 Teen Educators inspire a redirect by sharing practical, positive ways to empower all teens and parents.
Thought Leaders: Karen Shaw *Lead
Ray Erickson, Renee Walker, Gayle Rogers, Tami Walsh, Rob Broyles
Life Skill – Social Skills
In the past twenty years knowledge about the human brain has doubled - things recently considered fact are now known to be fictional. P20 New Horizon Thought Leaders speak to new frontiers in human development while simultaneously stressing the need for greater humility, gratitude, and optimism.
Thought Leaders: Marlaine Cover *Lead
Deborah McNelis, Jean Harris, Dr. Lynne Kenney, Janet Bray Attwood, Paul Rosengard, Bobbi DePorter
