Parent Education Opportunities
During the 2018–2019 school year, the Parents' Associations of St. Mark's and Hockaday invites parents to several special education opportunities, featuring bestselling authors and parenting experts.
Dr. Wendy Mogel is a renowned speaker, parenting expert and New York Times bestselling author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, and The Blessings of a B Minus. In her most recent book, Voice Lessons for Parents: What to Say, How To Say It, and When To Listen, Dr. Mogel offers an essential guide to the new art of talking to children and shows how a change in voice can transform conversations and ease the relationship between parents and children.

In her talk, Dr. Mogel will elaborate on a novel clinical approach she began talking with parents who were struggling with their kids, demonstrating how a shift in tone, tempo, and body language led to a surprising outcome: the children responded by cooperating with greater alacrity, and communicating with more warmth, respect, and sincerity. As the parents found their voices, so did the children.

Dr. Mogel also addresses an obstacle that flummoxes even the most seasoned and confident parent: the distraction of digital devices, how they impact our connection with our families, and what we can do about it.
