How To Talk So Kids Will Listen

Are you getting worn down by morning mayhem, bedtime battles, sibling scuffles, dawdling and defiance? Do you try to avoid using threats, bribes and punishments, but find yourself using them anyway, just to survive the day? Would you like to learn practical and effective methods that will make life with children easier and more satisfying?

Presented in partnership with the Pioneer Montessori School, come hear best-selling author Julie King introduce parents of children ages two to twelve to the language that reduces conflict, strengthens connection, and promotes cooperation between adults and children.

Julie will join us virtually over Zoom, and attendees will gather in the Library’s Lecture Hall to hear from Julie and engage in short breakouts to practice techniques. A Q&A with Julie will follow. Space is limited to 40 attendees, and registration is required. The program will also be livestreamed.

For anyone who finds themselves locked in a power struggle with children or wondering how to manage a tricky situation (in other words, everybody at one time or another), this presentation demonstrates truly practical methods to use humor, creativity and respect, instead of bribes, threats and punishments, to engage the cooperation of children. How To Talk is at the same time a whole new perspective on the parent-child relationship, and a down-to-earth how-to guide that will make life with children less stressful and more satisfying.

Pioneer Montessori School will make copies of Julie’s books available for purchase at the program. For parents of children ages two to seven, she recommends How To Talk So LITTLE Kids Will Listen. If you’ve already read that book, or your children are older than seven, she recommends How To Talk When Kids Won’t Listen, which covers children from preschool to early teens.
