1st Annual Speaker Series
with Dr. Steve Hughes

We all want our children to be happy, successful, and to possess good self-esteem. What are the best ways to achieve these goals? What should parents do? What are some common errors parents make? Are parents these days erring on the side of being too strict – or too permissive? What do we know about what works (and when is it okay to say “no” to my toddler?).
Dr. Steve Hughes traces the development of the self-esteem movement and reviews some of the surprising (and relieving) results of research examining optimal parenting practices. He closes with a set of practical recommendations for sensible, research-proven strategies to raise happy, helpful children.
