Ever experience that feeling of irritation, shame, embarrasment or frustration as you ask: why can’t my child behave? You’re not alone. With digital distractions everywhere, it seems like today’s kid’s are having a harder time than ever maintaining self-control. Is there something we can do?

Author and certified parent educator Katherine Reynolds Lewis says yes and she will share her wisdom with parents on Wednesday, December 4th, at 6:30pm. Sign up today to attend and hear about the modern state of bad behavior and game-changing strategies to alter it. 

Lewis is the author of The Good News About Bad Behavior, a book that grew out of her investigation of bad behavior that began when faced with parenting challenges of her own. Lewis criss-crossed the country to talk to parents, teachers, and kids and she learned what works and what doesn’t from the top parenting, classroom-management, rehabilitation, and brain-science experts. In the book, Lewis walks parents through four empowering approaches that help parents navigate tricky behavioral situations and work with their children toward better solutions. So often, parents ask, “How do we get the kids to do what we want?” Lewis, though, has found that the right question is: “Why can’t the kids do what we want?”
