Event description

Description

The last five decades have produced solid research about what kinds of parenting predict high achievement, social and emotional competence and a strong character. Pulling it off is quite another matter. Amidst good intentions, parents end up fighting with their kids about school achievement, disrespect, noncompliance, lazy work habits and all manner of household hassles. With touch screens as a constant source of entertainment and distraction, families have a tougher time than ever figuring out how to raise healthy children. This lecture will focus on how parents can be effective and skillful in handling typical parenting challenges, with the understanding that we all share the all-important goal of maintaining a loving, reliable and affectionate bond with our children even when
it feels like kids are pushing limits almost all the time.

Laura Kastner, Ph.D. is a clinical professor in both the psychology department and the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at University of Washington. Dr. Kastner is a nationally recognized author and speaker and has appeared on The Today Show and many TV news programs, as well as written for parenting magazines and has authored five parenting books.
