As a behavioral pediatrician, one of the things that I love offering to families is parenting support.
In fact, I used to teach basic child behavior management skills to practicing and future pediatricians from 2006 to 2018 when I was in academia.
I also offer parent training groups at my behavioral health private practice based in Indianapolis, Indiana.
When COVID-19 hit, I stopped in-person parent training workshops to minimize exposure risk. One day while at home, I looked over to my bookshelf and saw all my parenting books.
What if I could start a parenting book club on social media?
Who doesn't like a good book? However, while you can read a parenting book, it is much more fun to read, try it and reflect on what worked and didn't.
But it can be hard to read to learn when life is hectic. Sometimes you just need some support from others, whenever it fits your schedule.
Interested in joining? Fill out the form below to be alerted first to each new book club pick!
Every month I will announce upcoming book club picks so that you can plan ahead. You are welcome to join one or all. The only catch is that you HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU GET YOURSELF A COPY OF THE BOOK.
You'll want to join my exclusive closed Facebook Parenting Discussion Group, so you can bring your questions, comments, reflections or ask for help from other readers!
THAT is where the LEARNING happens! It is when you read and then try something and then learn from how it went. But let’s face it, life is never easy! Instead, it is complicated, messy and hard some times. So sometimes reading something and doing something can be very different. I want to be able to help support you as you read.
