Parents will learn how to create a family tech plan with their kids, take a slow-tech approach to introduce technology, and teach their children about digital dangers and distractions. In addition, Andrea will describe how to initiate "teen tech talks" with topics around mental health and personal values, preparing your teens for the dangers they might face online, and instill in their teens the skill of concentration, focus, and screen time management.

Voice Lessons for Parents & Caregivers: What to Say, When to Say It & How to Listen

Virtual Session on Thursday, September 28, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. 

Hosted by the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools (PAIS) and the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS), and made available to our community by Holy Child School at Rosemont, we invite our parents to register for a virtual session by Wendy Mogel, PhD, on the topic of Voice Lessons for Parents & Caregivers: What to Say, When to Say It & How to Listen.

A practicing social-clinical psychologist, public speaker, podcast host, and New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Mogel has written several parenting books and specializes in the promotion of self-reliance, resilience, accountability, and exuberance in children. 

What attendees can expect to learn:
Most parents are adept and savvy communicators, even when mild tensions arise in relationships—until they’re talking to their children. Addressing this growing challenge for families, Dr. Mogel developed a series of specific “voice lessons” for parents. Using humor and act outs she’ll share how a shift in vocal style, verbal content and timing will lead children to listen more attentively, communicate with more enthusiasm, respect, and sincerity and cooperate with more alacrity. She’ll reveal how each age and stage of a child’s life brings novel opportunities to connect. And the heartening news is that parents can model and teach the foundational skills of communication starting at birth…or anytime beyond. Participants will leave with specific skills and strategies to use with children of diverse temperaments and across the span of childhood and adolescence.
