Roseville Community Preschool Foundation welcomes acclaimed author and speaker Alfie Kohn to Roseville, CA.
Mr. Kohn will join us in the Auditorium of Woodcreek High School from 7-9 pm.
Most books and seminars for parents offer advice for getting children to be well behaved and to do what theyre told. (These resources differ only with respect to what methods are used to elicit that compliance.) If we think beyond the current moment, however, most of us would like our kids to grow into courageous, assertive, moral people independent thinkers who are willing to fight injustices. The question we need to ask, then, is what we should do or stop doing in our everyday interactions in order to make that happen. In this talk, Alfie Kohn explores the long-term consequences for children who have been raised to obey their parents and teachers uncritically, and he offers practical ideas for helping them question what theyre told, to be appropriately skeptical, and to stand up for what they believe in.
Alfie Kohn is the author of 14 books on education, parenting, and human behavior, including PUNISHED BY REWARDS (1993), THE SCHOOLS OUR CHILDREN DESERVE (1999), UNCONDITIONAL PARENTING (2005), THE HOMEWORK MYTH (2006), and THE MYTH OF THE SPOILED CHILD (2014). He has appeared twice on Oprah, as well as on The Today Show and many other TV and radio programs. His articles include: Five Reasons to Stop Saying Good Job!, How Not to Teach Values, and Atrocious Advice from Supernanny. Kohn works with educators and parents across the country and speaks regularly at national conferences. He lives (actually) in the Boston area and (virtually) at www.alfiekohn.org.
Tickets will only be available for sale through Brown Paper Tickets.
