Connecting Women. Sharing Wisdom.
 

Moms for Moms is an annual gathering of Regents mothers to connect in community, share experiences, and gain wisdom from those who have traveled the path ahead. 
 
Breakout sessions will provide a deep-dive into issues specific to each age and stage of K-12 motherhood. This year's event also offers a unique opportunity to meet several Regents alumni mothers ready to pour into moms still in the midst of the journey, as well as our boy and girl student/alumni panels. Moms who are new to Regents are invited to attend a post-event breakout session and lunch.
 
Please register to attend below. For planning purposes, please indicate the breakout session of greatest interest to you - descriptions are provided in the sidebar. However, you may attend a different breakout if you prefer during the event.

Breakout Sessions

List of 6 items.

  • Early Grammar Years (K-3rd/4th)

    Explore those first challenges of school from reading, to homework time to the politics of playdates, sleepovers and video games. Even the simplest days can catch you by surprise and leave you exhausted and your child frustrated. Talk about how to walk alongside your child through struggles and find joy in this precious age and stage.
  • Tweens and Thirteens (4th-6th/7th)

    Introducing Latin, fine arts, sports and changing teachers/classrooms can be daunting for a child as well as a mother. Your sons and daughters are growing in their independence in school work and responsibilities as well as the influence of peers from screens to sports and beauty. New experiences lead them to expanding the scope of new Christian leaders in their life, such as coaches, church youth, young life, camp counselors and more. Engage with Regents mothers about what it means to love your child through these formative years.
  • Transition from Logic into Rhetoric (7th/8th-9th)

    The academic stakes get higher in the minds of a rising 9th grade student. All of sudden, the grades matter, the fine arts and sports are more competitive and students are the youngest (in SOR) rather than the oldest (in SOL). Transition is complicated by social media, the dramatic leaps in physical growth, shifting friendships, and insecurities ("I'm the only one!"). You'll talk about the expanding world of social media, athletics, fine arts, club sports and the budding goals to play varsity or play in college. Regents mothers who have raised guys and girls through these confusing years will give you some perspective on the other side of the awkwardness.
  • High School Years (9th-12th)

    What keeps you up at night? TEENS! Join in this fun discussion about the ups and downs of fishbowl dating, driving, curfews, social media, and preparing for college - ACTs/SATs, college visits - how many choices are too many choices. Moms will talk about what it's like to shift the dialogue from directing to coaching your child through choices; helping him or her find a niche; ie. fine arts, athletics, service and more. This discussion led by veteran Regents moms will be focused on keeping the stress down in your home - rather than driving it up.
  • The Adult Child - Flown and Grown (11th/12th and Beyond)

    After students return from the junior class trip, they feel older and begin to think of themselves as seniors ready to graduate and become adults.  Spring of senior year is the beginning of a new chapter for mothers as well as seniors.  Seniors begin to emotionally separate from school (aka senioritis) and moms notice it first.  But what is mother's role now?  And what is your relationship with these "adults" after they leave for college....and come back home?  Even more fun and interesting, will be the conversation about the joys of the empty nest led by Regents alumni moms in a heartwarming discussion.
  • New to Regents Lunch Session (Any Age - New Stage)

    Stepping into community at Regents, especially with an older child, can be intimidating and challenging. You are balancing the everyday challenges of school and extra-curricular as well as helping your child find friends, fit in, and feel confident while you meet other mothers. Listen to stories from Regents moms who have experienced what it's like to be new to Regents and new to Austin, Texas.
