Parents League School Advisor Elaine Perlman presents her new book: Be the Parent You Wish You Had: For All Parents & Grandparents.
Children can be our greatest source of joy or our most fierce foes. They are in our care for nearly two decades, and no two days are the same. When we were young, we sometimes fantasized about what we would do as a parent. Let’s become that parent. Based on her research writing this book and her 30 years as an educator, Elaine will present parenting strategies and insights including:
• Building gratitude, not brat-itutde
• Staying cool when times get hot
• Cultivating children's imaginations
• Parenting more like a chef than a barber
Following her presentation there will be a Q &A session. Elaine’s book will be available for purchase at the event.
