Speakers

Dr. Mary Lacey is a psychotherapist who works with girl groups on social media and the effects it has on them. She has been featured on NPR and Charlotte Today. She will speak on the pressures social media puts on tweens and teens. She will provide tips on how to talk to your children about misleading messages we receive from media and how to teach them to navigate the deceptive images they see everyday. You can learn more about Dr. Lacey's practice here.

 

 

 

Melanie Hempe is the founder of Families Managing Media. She has coached hundreds of families on the effects of screen media use and has helped them achieve a healthier, more balanced media life. With a degree in nursing from Emory University, Melanie draws upon her medical background to demystify the questions of why technology has such a strong grip on our kids and why it is replacing normal childhood activities. She offers busy parents easy-to-follow scientific information and practical solutions for children of all ages.

 

*Massages and Networking: Starting at 11am, enjoy complimentary massages, register for door prizes and sip on Arnold Palmers while networking with other moms and our vendors in the lobby.

*Valet Instructions: When you arrive, please enter the valet porte-cochere off of the hotel's 3rd street entrance. Let the bellman know you are there for the Charlotte Parent Luncheon.

*If Valet is Full: Enter the parking garage connected to the Hilton Charlotte, off 3rd street or Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. When you enter into the garage, you will get a ticket with a pink stripe, keep this ticket.
