Jewish Parent Book Group

Thursday, November 9, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM <Add to Calendar>

Raising children has always been demanding, and our current culture has its own challenges (social media, competition, culture of protecting kids from discomfort). Meet monthly with other parents, using a parenting book and discussion to keep trying to be the best parent you can be.

In this four-part series, group members will listen (before each session) to The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting: Raising Children with Courage, Compassion, and Connection*, an audio-book by Brene Brown, LCSW and use it as a springboard to discussions about major and minor issues in family life. Co-Sponsored by the National Council of Jewish Women, Chicago North Shore Section. Led by Tracey Lipsig Kite, a social worker and mom.

Jewish Parent Book Group

Thursday, January 11, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM <Add to Calendar>

Raising children has always been demanding, and our current culture has its own challenges (social media, competition, culture of protecting kids from discomfort). Meet monthly with other parents, using a parenting book and discussion to keep trying to be the best parent you can be.

In this four-part series, group members will listen (before each session) to The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting: Raising Children with Courage, Compassion, and Connection*, an audio-book by Brene Brown, LCSW and use it as a springboard to discussions about major and minor issues in family life. Co-Sponsored by the National Council of Jewish Women, Chicago North Shore Section. Led by Tracey Lipsig Kite, a social worker and mom.
