Raising A Kid Who Can: The Ten Parenting Essentials To Start the School Year Strong

A new school year brings an opportunity for a fresh start for all of us!

If we have learned anything from living through a global pandemic, it’s that today’s kids need to be able to adjust and recalibrate and to manage everyday challenges with confidence and composure. But how do we ensure that the next generation can roll with the inevitable punches of daily life?

Enter three mental health experts and longtime Safe Community Coalition volunteers and supporters  Heather Tedesco, PhD,  Jennifer Weaver, LCSW and Catherine McCarthy, MD, whose new book, Raising a Kid Who Can: Simple Strategies to Build a Lifetime of Adaptability and Emotional Strength , is considered by experts to be “a must-read for parents (Dr. William Stixrud, coauthor of The Self-Driven Child), “exactly the road map parents need” (Dr. Eli Lebowitz of the Yale Child Study Center), and “a truly great addition to the world of parenting books” (Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, coauthor of The Whole Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline).  The authors created a playbook that arms parents with all the tools they need to navigate a complex world and help our kids move from an age of anxiety into an age of adaptability in a way that no other generation before has been able to do.

Join us for an evening where you can learn from a child psychiatrist, a parent psychologist, and a child therapist who have spent years distilling the latest parenting science and best practices to answer the complex question: Based on all that modern science has to offer, what are the most important things I should try to do in raising my kid? The speakers know what matters, they know what works, and they know how to explain it to parents so they can do it.  They will give you the confidence and clarity to tackle the thorniest questions facing todays parents, such as how to handle a meltdown, what to do if your child is feeling anxious, how to approach technology, and how to prepare your kids for an uncertain future.

The Safe Community Coalition in partnership with the Temple Rodef Shalom is proud to host the authors of Raising A Kid Who Can on Wednesday, September 13th, 2023. We hope you will plan to join us at Temple Rodef Shalom for an event that is sure to help parents – and kids – start the new school year off strong.
