Book Club: you are a f*cking awesome mom

Join us for our April Book Club discussion of “you are a f*cking awesome mom” by Leslie Ann Bruce.
About this Event
A much-needed voice of encouragement for every woman who had a baby and lost her mind

Sometimes, motherhood feels never-ending. A child is born, chaos ensues, and it seems like life will never return to normal.

In You Are a F*cking Awesome Mom, award-winning journalist and Instagram star Leslie Anne Bruce acknowledges that, yes, motherhood is a total mind f*ck-but then she offers the self-empowerment lessons mothers need to get through the psychic upheaval and emerge stronger than ever. After childbirth, a woman’s body, her relationships, and her very sense of self are tested like never before. Bruce encourages readers to look past the sugarcoated truisms about the miracles of child-rearing in order to embrace the real joys of motherhood, spit-up stains and all.

Loaded with unfettered support from a mom who has been through it all, You Are a F*cking Awesome Mom offers a lifeline of encouragement, inspiration, and community for the mama who got a baby, lost her mind, and desperately wants to find herself again.

Book Club: Whole Brain Child

Join us for our January Book Club discussion of “Whole Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind ”
About this Event
In this pioneering, practical, New York Times Bestseller book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children. The authors explain—and make accessible—the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. The “upstairs brain,” which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. No wonder kids throw tantrums, fight, or sulk in silence. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth.

Complete with age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles and illustrations that will help you explain these concepts to your child, The Whole-Brain Child shows you how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so that your children can lead balanced, meaningful, and connected lives.

Helping Children Deal With Grief

We cannot protect our children from ever feeling the pain of loss but we can help them manage the pain and express their emotions. Nicole Wallace discusses how to identify the signs of grief at different age ranges, engaging your child in healthy forms of grief expression, ways to encourage conversations about grief with children.

Conversation Circle: Helicopter Parenting & Kids’ Health

Has protective parenting gone too far? Several high-profile news stories, along with increasing rates of childhood obesity, anxiety and depression, have sparked a movement encouraging parents to allow their children greater freedom. The nonprofit Let Grow is leading the call for what’s known as “free range parenting,” in which kids can just be kids.

This conversation circle is based on the 9 minute PBS segment “Why Helicopter Parenting May Jeopardize Kids’ Health.”

We encourage you to view the clip prior to attending so that you may fully participate in the conversation!
