The Blessing of a Skinned Knee – a book study for parents.
Internationally known clinical psychologist and lecturer Wendy Mogel’s sage reflections on raising children in a world where entitlement and competition abound, have struck a chord with thousands of readers. In a culture whose values are often at odds with the ones parents wish to uphold and instill, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee points the way to raising self-reliant, compassionate and ethical children. The class will be led by Nancy Blake. Please read chapters 3-4 before the class. New attendees should purchase their own copy of the book. Childcare will be provided but please bring a snack for your kiddos.
