Parent Education - Book Club
Join us on Friday April 12th at 8:00 a.m. in Hauser Hall to discuss "Why Good Kids Act Cruel: The Hidden Truth about the Pre-Teen Years" by Carl Pickhardt, PhD.
Why do many good children increasingly treat each other badly starting as early as late elementary school; when does this meanness become most common; what are the objectives this deliberate mistreatment; how is it typically delivered; and what can parents and teachers do to help children in response?
The Parent Education Committee is starting to plan for next school year's events. Please let us know your interests in terms of speakers, books & events. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
