Perfectly Imperfect

A Book Club for Modern Parents

Raising Kind and Socially Responsible Children in A World That Won’t Turn Off

Nishant Mehta, head of school for The Children’s School, hosts a book club for perfectly imperfect parents who are doing their best to raise kind and socially responsible kids in today’s modern world. Join other Atlanta parents and professionals each month for an honest discussion about how to tackle tough parenting topics like: keeping your children safe on the internet; navigating social pressures at school and outside; and standing up to bullies and bullying behaviors all within a supportive group with parents who show up as their authentic selves and celebrate their imperfections!

Since 2001, Nishant has worked with parents across the United States and offered advice and strategies to busy families who are doing their best to raise kids in a world that won’t turn off.

October’s Book Selection

This month’s book selection is “All's Faire in Middle School" by Victoria Jamieson.

From "Calling all Raina Telgemeier fans! The Newbery Honor-winning author of Roller Girl is back with a heartwarming graphic novel about starting middle school, surviving your embarrassing family, and the Renaissance Faire."

November Book Club

November's club will meet on Fri., Nov. 17, 12:00 - 1:15 p.m., at Apres Diem (931 Monroe Dr, Atlanta, GA 30308).

We're trying something a little different this month! Instead of one book, we've selected four illustrated books for ages 4-8 that all deal with what it means to belong, to embrace difference, and to show up as one’s authentic self. They are: "We're All Wonders" by R. J. Palacio, "Stellaluna" by Janell Cannon, "I Will Never Get a Star on Mrs. Benson's Blackboard" by Jennifer K. Mann, and "Red: A Crayon's Story" by Michael Hall.

The books are mentioned in this "New York Times" article, and we encourage you to read them with your kids!
