Dear Kindergarten and First Grade Faculty and Staff,

I am very excited to invite you to attend a special event, Monday, May 20, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. with guest speaker and author Joanna Faber, author of How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen. Joanna Faber is coming to Wellesley through the generosity of the Wellesley Education Foundation (WEF) and in collaboration with the Wellesley Early Learning Leaders (W.E.L.L.).  It is rare that a presenter comes to speak to us with the specific focus on early childhood needs. We are very pleased to have this opportunity to share with our community!

Being a parent can be rewarding and sometimes overwhelming! This presentation is designed specifically to support parents of children ages 2-7.  After the presentation, the author will be available for a question and answer session and to sign books.

The event is free, but registration for the event is required and limited to the first 210 people who register.   Click on this link (https://forms.gle/beX1Z1i5YGKXV6Yi8) to complete the registration form to reserve your spot.

We are grateful to our colleagues at St. John’s School, Wellesley, MA, who have offered to host the event in their Philbin Hall.  We look forward to seeing you on May 20th, for this informative and exciting event!

About the Book from Amazon.com:

Over 100,000 copies in print!

A must-have guide for anyone who lives or works with young kids, with an introduction by Adele Faber, coauthor of How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk, the international mega-bestseller The Boston Globe dubbed “The Parenting Bible.”

For nearly forty years, parents have turned to How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk for its respectful and effective solutions to the unending challenges of raising children. Now, in response to growing demand, Adele’s daughter, Joanna Faber, along with Julie King, tailor How to Talk’s powerful communication skills to parents of children ages two to seven.

Faber and King, each a parenting expert in her own right, share their wisdom accumulated over years of conducting How To Talk workshops with parents, teachers, and pediatricians. With a lively combination of storytelling, cartoons, and observations from their workshops, they provide concrete tools and tips that will transform your relationship with the children in your life.

What do you do with a little kid who…won’t brush her teeth…screams in his car seat…pinches the baby…refuses to eat vegetables…throws books in the library…runs rampant in the supermarket? Organized by common challenges and conflicts, this book is an essential manual of communication strategies, including a chapter that addresses the special needs of children with sensory processing and autism spectrum disorders.

This user-friendly guide will empower parents and caregivers of young children to forge rewarding, joyful relationships with terrible two-year-olds, truculent three-year-olds, ferocious four-year-olds, foolhardy five-year-olds, self-centered six-year-olds, and the occasional semi-civilized seven-year-old. And, it will help little kids grow into self-reliant big kids who are cooperative and connected to their parents, teachers, siblings, and peers.
