The Doseum's 9th Annual Outside the Lunchbox Luncheon

Lunch seminar

October 12, 2018 | 11:30 am - 1:00 pm CT | San Antonio, TX, US

How many times have you heard the word "No" from your child when facing challenges, unpleasant tasks, and contentious issues such as homework, screen time, food choices, and bedtime? Children often act out or shut down, responding with  reactivity instead  of  receptivity.

This is what New York Times bestselling author Dr. Tina Payne Bryson calls a No Brain response. We are all anxious to learn more about this topic and how to address it from Dr. Bryson at The DoSeum's 9th Annual Outside the Lunchbox Luncheon.

York Times Best Sellers "No-Drama Discipline" (2014) and "The Whole Brian Child" (2011) with Dan Siegel. Their latest book, "The Yes Brain", was published in January 2018 and will be the focus of Tina's talk at the luncheon.

Dr. Bryson will show us how our kids can be taught to approach life with openness and curiosity and how parents can foster their children's ability to say yes to the YES world and welcome all that life has to offer, even during difficult times. This is what  it means to cultivate a Yes Brain, and it leads to the characteristics we want to nurture in  them:  emotional  regulation, resilience, personal insight, and empathy. We are pleased to welcome Tina to San Antonio!

We graciously ask you to support The DoSeum's annual luncheon by sponsoring a table or offering underwriting support. This event enables us to continuously grow minds, connect families and transform communities through joyful learning and discovery. Your gift this year is also allowing 150 local teachers the free opportunity to meet and learn from Dr. Bryson.

We look forward to your positive response of support and to seeing you at this fun and educational event. If you have questions, please contact Dustin Christensen, Senior Corporate Sponsorship & Events Manager, at (210) 572-0611 or email
