International author and speaker Barbara Coloroso should not be missed as she presents "Parenting with Wit and Wisdom: Helping Children Become Self-Disciplined, Compassionate, Responsible, Resourceful and Resilient Human Beings."
The evening will be packed with solid practical advice for parents of children from toddlers to teenagers, that shows how to utilize the very stuff of family life-chores, mealtime, sibling rivalry, toilet training, bedtime, allowances and more-to create a home environment in which children can become self-disciplined, compassionate, responsible, resourceful, resilient human beings who can act in their own best interest, stand up for themselves and exercise their own rights while respecting the rights and legitimate needs of others. Barbara will discuss the keys to good parenting: treating kids with respect; giving them a sense of positive power in their own lives; giving them opportunities to make decisions, take responsibility for their actions and learn from their successes and mistakes.
Barbara has penned "The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander: From
Preschool to High School--How Parents and Teachers Can Help Break the

Just Because It Isn't Wrong Doesn't Make it Right: Teaching Kids to Think "
and "Act Ethically, Parenting Through Crisis: Helping Kids in Times of
