About the Event

About the Talk:

Most parents are perfectly fine communicators—unless they’re talking to their children. Too often, their pitch rises and they can come across as pleading, indignant, wounded, or outraged. In tone and body language they signal, I can’t handle it when you act like a child. Dr. Wendy Mogel (author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, and The Blessing of a B Minus) has developed a remarkably effective series of “voice lessons,” which she shares with parents who are struggling with their kids. What she has seen is that the results were immediate: a shift in vocal style led to children who were calmer, listened more attentively, and communicated with more warmth, respect, and sincerity.
