Rav Wolbe, ZTZ"L, in his sefer Zeriah Ubinyan Bchinuch, said that Chinuch needs to be studied like any other discipline. Being a parent is one of the most important roles we have, so we need to strive to become expert at this role. In their jobs, most people constantly receive training and put long hours and many years to become better at what they do. Don't we owe it to our precious children to put in the same effort to improve the way we parent?

In this presentation you will learn that indeed the Time-Honored Principles of Chinuch do work with today's children.

Here are some of the topics covered in the teleconference:

* Tips for staying calm.

* The need for children to feel "normal."

* Tools for better understanding your children.

* The importance of not compromising your role as parent.

* ...that it's not about you!

* The importance of constancy
