Our Summer Book Study in August, (there’s still three nights to join in!), at 7:00 pm-August 12, 19 and 26-as we read and discuss, “No, Why Kids – of All Ages – Need to Hear it, and Ways Parents Can Say It”, by Dr. David Walsh.
Following the completion of our book study, we will welcome Erin Walsh, M.A. as a guest speaker and expert on brain development on Wednesday, September 3rd at 6:30 pm in the Fireside Room. Erin Walsh is a dynamic, knowledgeable speaker who has addressed a wide range of audiences on topics related to brain development and raising resilient young people in the digital age.
More about the book: No. It’s not just a one-word answer, it’s a parenting strategy. By saying no when they need to, parents help their children learn skills, such as self-reliance, self-discipline, respect, integrity, the ability to delay gratification, and a host of other crucial character traits. Although the importance of no should be obvious, many parents have a hard time saying it when other parents and the culture around them are being permissive, even when they know they should.
Open to all parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, faith parents, Godparents and other adults who care about kids. Books are available on the buffet in the Undercroft, or by contacting Jean Hansen at 952-201-0424.
