THE ART AND SCIENCE OF TALKING WITH YOUR KIDS
Wednesday, May 2, 2018, at 7 p.m. at Temple Rodef Shalom in McLean with Dr. Wendy Mogel
Dr. Mogel is known for combining cutting-edge psychological research with timeless wisdom in guiding parents through the rough waters of child rearing in today’s competitive world. In her new book, Voice Lessons for Parents: What to Say, How to Say it, and When to Listen, Dr. Mogel offers an essential guide to the art of talking with children of all ages, showing us how a change in voice can transform communication and ease the relationship between parents and children. Her research-based guidelines help parents communicate with more warmth, respect, and sincerity, as well as foster open parent-child relationships that will help ensure our children’s success in the classroom and in life.
In Voice Lessons for Parents: What to Say, How to Say it, and When to Listen, her new book to be released in April, Mogel will show parents how to cultivate the art of conversation – from infancy to adulthood – in an age of hurry, worry, and digital distraction. She demonstrates how a shift in tone, tempo, and body language can open up avenues of communication between parents and their kids, as well as between parents and teachers, coaches, caretakers, and partners. Dr. Mogel also addresses an obstacle that is frustrating even the most seasoned and confident parents – the distraction of digital devices.
