Event description
A Conversation with Sara Zaske, author of "Achtung Baby: An American Mom on the German Art of Raising Self-Reliant Children."

About this Event

Join author Sara Zaske and fellow parents and educators for an evening of cross-cultural learning and conversation about modern parenting and raising independent, self-reliant children.

Ms. Zaske will share her research and experiences on raising children in Germany, where school kids often:

  • walk to school and take subway trains by themselves
  • buy things in stores without their parents
  • learn how to build fires
  • climb 15-foot+ playground structures
  • tackle difficult subjects including sex, death and the darker parts of history 

She will discuss how the German approach to risk-taking and independence fosters self-reliance in children and young people – and ways that American parents and educators can bring more freedom back into our own children’s lives. The evening will include a Q & A session with the audience, and a book-signing.

This event is a fundraiser that is open to the public and co-sponsored by the Twin Cities German Immersion School and the University of St. Thomas German Department. Proceeds benefit the Twin Cities German Immersion School Annual Fund.

Achtung Baby: An American Mom on the German Art of Raising Self-Reliant Children is available on IndieBound, Books-A-Million, Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, and from local booksellers.
