THE SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL LEARNING (SEL) COMMITTEE'S PS 154 PARENTING BOOK CLUB!

THURS, FEB 28 AT 6:30 PM IN THE MMR

*Please* join us for the third book club meeting! For this half of the school year, we are doing a deep dive into the work of Dr. Laura Markham, a psychologist, parenting expert, best-selling author and mom who happens to be local to Brooklyn! Her writing and coaching are beautifully aligned with the PS 154 Parent SEL Committee’s goals of parenting through building connection, positive discipline and deepening our children’s and our own emotional intelligence.  

Book: “Peaceful Parents, Happy Kids,” by Dr. Laura Markham
