Raising Caring, Capable Kids with Habits of Mind Workshop
Join authors Lauren A. Carner, Ph.D and Angela Iadavaia-Cox for this informative workshop for parents, teachers, and other care-givers based on their book Raising Capable, Caring Kids with Habits of Mind. This workshop includes a brief overview of what the habits of mind are, an in-depth discussion of some of these habits with a focus on how parents and caregivers alike can use them at home and school, with handouts and a Q&A session afterwards.
Raising Caring, Capable Kids with Habits of Mind provides many engaging stories and examples for parents to their help children succeed and thrive in school as well as in life. There are practical tips that apply to daily life with children—for issues big and small— everything from managing homework to resolving arguments between siblings to encouraging the reluctant child. This book breaks new ground in taking the Habits of Mind out of the classroom and into the home.
