Parent University

NPN's Parent University Speaker Series brings you pertinent information on parenting and lifestyle issues. Each event will not only provide interaction with a professional on the topic of the day, but also a chance to connect with and learn from other parents. Parent University is one of the many ways NPN facilitates interaction among our member parents while providing you with educational resources. If you have an idea for a future speaker/session, please contact us at

An E-Ticket is required to attend all Parent University Speaker Series events - 1 adult per each E-ticket.
