ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Overindulgence is an issue many people face in our society as the research and subsequent literature has shown us. While society tells us we need more on a regular basis, parents and children alike are struggling to understand how much is enough and adults who were given too much as children often feel the effects.
Please join Ellie McCann and Becky Hagen Jokela, University of Minnesota Extension Educators, as we explore the following:

What is overindulgence?
Three ways parents overindulge
Tools to reduce overindulgence (The Test of Four)
Online course offerings
