How To Parent So Children Will Learn

Dr. Rimm will share the foundational principles of parenting children, based on her many years of experience as a psychologist directing Family Achievement Clinic, and her parenting books, How to Parent So Children Will Learn.  She will describe the cornerstones of raising happy, achieving children.

  1. Empowering Your Children with the V of Love - How to praise and empower moderately so children do not feel excess pressure, are not given adult power too soon, and are encouraged to love learning.
  2. United Parenting - How parents can support each other and their children's teachers to strengthen the educational process and prevent their children's underachievement and disrespect.  Reference to single parenting, grandparenting, and child care providers will be included.
  3. Teaching Habits That Encourage Learning - How to teach organization, study habits, and independent daily routines which will foster achievement and self-confidence.
  4. Role Models of Achievement - How parents can communicate messages about achievement to their children by what they say about their own work.

Related materials include the book, How to Parent So Children Will Learn, and the companion 2-CD set.
