Parents Share -- The Danish Way of Parenting: What the Happiest People in the World Know About Raising Confident, Capable Kids


MPLS - Wed, Jan 11 through Feb 8, 9:30-11am, Room 394-96

 

Join us as we read and reflect on "What the Happiest People in the World Know About Raising Confident, Capable Kids." Of course, this is what all of us want for the children we love… to be happy, confident, and capable and to live and flourish in a family where they are loved and affirmed. American parents have figured out how to raise children who achieve academically, athletically, and artistically; keep busy schedules; and give their parents something to write about in the Christmas letter. Join Marilyn Sharpe, Mount Olivet member, parent, and parent educator, as we cross the Atlantic Ocean to discover the Danish way of parenting. The Danes have learned something about becoming a family where parents and kids thrive in one another’s presence. You will discover all of the things you are already doing right, fine tune a few things that can make you happier, and be back in time for lunch!

Register www.mtolivet.org. Cost: $15 (includes book).
