About

Renowned speaker, parenting expert and New York Times bestselling author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, Dr. Wendy 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 relationships between adults and kids.

Please join CSEE and Dr. Mogel for an engaging presentation, followed by a book signing. School faculty and parents are welcome!

In her new book, Voice Lessons, Mogel elaborates on this novel clinical approach, revealing how each age and stage of a child’s life brings new opportunities to connect through language. Delving into sources as diverse as neuroscience, fairy tales, and anthropology, Mogel offers specific guidance for talking to children across the expanse of childhood and adolescence. She also explains the best ways to talk about your child to grandparents, partners, and exes, and to teachers, coaches, and caretakers. Throughout the book, Mogel 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.

  

About Dr. Mogel

Dr. Mogel is not only an acclaimed psychologist and author, she has disarming candor, quick wit, and cutting-edge psychological research at her fingertips to guide parents through the rough waters of child-rearing. Drawing on insights from her thirty-five year career in clinical psychology, Dr. Mogel unravels the paradox of good-intentioned, devoted parenting gone astray. She explains how over-protection, over-scheduling, over-indulgence and perfectionism undermine children’s intrinsic motivation, resilience, and pride in their achievements. Dr. Mogel's work supports parents and faculty, guiding them in raising and coaching children to become mature stakeholders in our schools. 

Publisher’s Weekly gave her classic parenting book, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, a starred review, calling it “impassioned, lyrical and eminently practical.” Her revelatory second release, The Blessing of a B Minus, addresses the challenge of parenting adolescents in a culture of anxiety and entitlement. She is now working on another book—a guide for teenagers—aimed at helping them develop the critical skills of self-knowledge, self-discipline and self-assurance in our highly pressured and rapidly changing world.
