GIST: The Essence of Raising Life-Ready Kids
Course Code: 9686
  • Tuesday October 18th 2016 (7:00pm - 9:00pm)

GIST will give new and valuable insight into the process of how kids mature through their experiences of life, what the authors call a "checklist to adulthood." You will be given new ways of thinking about learning and anti-learning, fun and joy, self-esteem, minimizing shame, understanding self-protective behavior, over-talking to your kids, why kids do stuff that drives you crazy, and the importance of truth-telling.

GIST will make you think, force you to go deeper, and may even ruffle some feathers. Like it or not, many parents today are struggling and the younger generation is now living out the consequences of ineffective, over-nurturing, over-indulgent, and over-protective approaches. GIST focuses on how looking at parenting differently is the first step in growing-up your children.
