Children today are less well-behaved than their parents were at their age. They constantly seek out attention and stimulus. They bore easily and act out accordingly. They have much higher expectations than children of generations passed and often have a sense of entitlement. All of this makes parenting an even greater challenge than it has always been. Raising children would be tough enough on its own without the added concerns of struggling with full-time employment and the rest of life’s challenges. The combination is enough to bring a person to their wits’ end. Sarah Chana Radcliffe’s guide to effective parenting Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice offers solutions to the most demanding aspects of child rearing.On February 20th and March 6th, Sarah Chana will present a two-part parenting workshop that will be ideal for parents of children aged 4-12. The workshops will be held at The Village Shul, 1072 Eglinton Avenue West from 8:00-9:30 PM. Admission is $60 and includes a free downloadable recording of Sarah Chana’s 2x Rule and $5 discount off the price of her book, Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice. Coffee and pastries will be served. Free baby-sitting is available and there is ample parking in the area.

“Parenting is meant to bring out the best in you and the best in your children. It does this through a series of challenges, each one inviting you to overcome personal limitations and develop increasing levels of competence, wisdom and emotional power. At the end of the journey, you are light-years away from your starting point, richer in every way. The process, never carefree or easy, stretches your heart and your strength to full capacity; you are the escort for the first phase of your children’s journey. You will prepare them for life.”
By following the principles in Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice, parents can create an environment that is a haven from the stresses of the everyday world. Come to Sarah Chana’s workshops and learn how to apply her techniques. The workshops are co-sponsored by the Jewish Family Institute and kid PRNCIPLES
