Parenting Discussion with Local Author at BCD
April 7 @ 6:30 p.m.
Williams College professor and frequent lecturer Susan Engel will speak about parenting issues addressed in her recently published book Red Flags or Red Herrings?: Predicting Who Your Children will Become at Berkshire Country Day School’s Furey Hall Music Room. The talk is sponsored by the Berkshire Country Day School Parents’ Association, and is designed to provide parents and caregivers with practical advice on navigating the world of child-rearing.
In today’s world, parents are bombarded with information about the latest societal ills plaguing children and teens, making it feel more difficult than ever to raise happy, well-adjusted kids. Parenting has become increasingly pressure-filled and competitive. But Engel, a developmental psychologist and New York Times op-ed contributor, feels it is high time parents be liberated from all the worry about their child’s development as she urges most parents to relax, observe and listen.
