Thursday, February 21st, 2019, 6 p.m.

Linda Powers discusses parenting techniques as ways to nurture current and future generations as she presents Parenting Across the Life Span!

About the book: Parenting takes many twists and turns as we invest our energy into nurturing others. There will be wonderful surprises and proud moments interspersed with times of intense worry, sadness, frustration, and disappointment. Linda E. Powers, who raised three daughters and is a child and adolescent psychotherapist, educator, and former pediatric nurse, helps parents make sense of it all in this guide for helping children of all ages-from infancy into adulthood. She outlines theories of social and emotional development, the importance of mental health during pregnancy, how heredity and environment contribute to temperament, how to improve a toddler's speech through verbal interactions, the power of play and pretend, ways to help children understand right versus wrong, and how to navigate interactions with adult children. Parenting can be a more positive experience if we understand the developmental process, have good communication tools, and use effective strategies to manage stress while spending quality time with our families.
