Back-to-school time is the perfect time to retool family and home routines. Parenting expert and Middlebury local Vicki Hoefle will present her latest book, The Straight Talk on Parenting, to help you get your kids, and your home life, in order. Hoefle shows parents how to trust their intuition and develop an intentional strategy for meeting each child’s unique needs. Parents, this is YOUR chance to ask questions, hear stories and learn how you can confidently make decisions.
Hoefle, professional parent educator and author of Duct Tape Parenting, will present and discuss her new book, The Straight Talk on Parenting: A No-Nonsense Approach on How to Grow a Grown-Up. In this new parenting guide, parents are instructed to get off the path to perfection and get back to the real job of parenting: to grow a grown-up. Hoefle draws upon twenty-five years of experience with helping parents see the big picture and sidestep what she calls the “detail drama” that too often trumps everyday life with our kids. She will address common issues parents face (and often dread!) and discuss her methodology that focuses on parents helping their children build a strong foundation for their own success.
This event is free and will be held at Middlebury Chocolates, 7 Frog Hollow Alley. Chocolate, coffee and books will be available for purchase. RSVPs are kindly requested (either on facebook or via email).
