October 28, 2014
Cosponsored by the UJA Federation’s Julia and Henry Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Education
In this presentation, Dona Matthews and Joanne Foster reveal seven key secrets to help parents support and encourage their children’s and teens’ optimal development. The authors discuss how to be attuned to a child’s personality and changing needs; provide multi-sensory stimulation and learning opportunities; foster intelligence; nurture creativity; strive for balance, cultivate a growth mindset; and respond to what’s central to the child’s well-being. Dona and Joanne pay close attention to the implications for busy parents, and provide lots of practical take-home strategies.
