Vicki Hoefle | The Straight Talk on Parenting

VickiIn the new book from Vicki Hoefle, The Straight Talk on Parenting: A No-Nonsense Approach on How to Grow a Grown-up, parents are instructed to get off the path to perfection and get back to the real job of parenting: to grow a grown-up. Join Hoefle at the Norwich Bookstore as part of a reading and discussion co-sponsored by The Family Place.

Parents these days are under a great deal of pressure to be "perfect." From psychologists to social scientists, journalists to weekend bloggers, everyone has an opinion about the do's and don'ts for raising healthy, well-adjusted -- and let's not forget, polite -- children in today's fast-paced world. Where does this leave parents? Too often, lacking in confidence, ill equipped, and overwhelmed. In this no-nonsense parenting guide, Hoefle draws upon twenty-five years of experience with helping parents see the big picture and sidestep what she calls the "detail drama" that too often trumps everyday life with our kids. Parents learn more than just strategies; they learn a methodology that allows them to help their toddlers build a strong foundation for success in adulthood.

This is a ticketed event with all proceeds going to The Family Place in Norwich, VT. Tickets are $5.00 and include admission plus 10% off Hoefle's book. Please drop by the bookstore or The Family Place to purchase a ticket (cash or check only, please) and reserve a seat.
