Parenting Book Club


Ever read a parenting book and just want to be able to talk about how it applies to you, your child and your family?  I am excited to be offering a FREE parenting book club.  The first book that we will be reading is the Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. and Tina Yane Bryson, PH.D.  As a therapist who works a lot with parents, I have read my fair share of parenting books.  Most I will say, take what you need and leave the rest.  This is one of the books I do recommend and often.  Understanding and learning about our own brain is extremely helpful, so why not learn about your child’s?  So drop your kids off (or put them to bed), get your coffee and come relax with other parents to discuss the hardest job you probably have, parenting!

How this will work

Please email me or call me to register.  This group is free, but you will need to purchase the book on your own.  I have attached the amazon link, but most book stores carry this book.  We will be meeting on Mondays at 10 am or 7:30pm at Irondequoit Child and Family Wellness Center (809 East Ridge Road, Rochester, NY 14621).  If that times does not work for you and you would like to participate, please contact me.

Schedule is as follows:

Week 1 October 17th Chapters 1 and 2

Week 2 October 24th Chapter 3

Week 3 October 31st Chapter 4 (no PM class)

Week 4 November 7 Chapter 5

Week 5 November Chapter 6 and conclusion

Time: 10am to 10:50am or 7:30-8:20pm

Please only bring infants due to the discussion.

This group is for informational and educational purposes only, and is not a therapy group.

Space is limited, so please register early by contacting me at or 585-208-8140.
