Seton to host parent education session with Dr. Sharon Maxwell – March 21, 2014
Seton Montessori welcomes Sharon Maxwell, Ph.D., on Friday, March 21, 2014 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. for a parent talk about ways of cultivating balance, respect and developmentally appropriate childhood environments in this media-drive, sexualized, digital culture.
“Our kids are looking for a way of understanding sexuality that will help them make sense out of what they see around them and guide their decision-making. Starting and sustaining a dialogue around sex with our children is an essential part of parenting,” Dr. Maxwell.
Educators, health professionals and parents have used this approach to prepare kids for a hypersexualized world and lay the foundation for ethical sexual behavior that will guide our children from elementary school through college.
Dr. Maxwell is an award-winning author, educator and practicing clinical psychologist. Her work has been featured in TIME Magazine, US News and World Report, USA Today, Working Mother, The Boston Globe, on NPR, Oprah and Friends and Fox News. The Boston Parents Paper has voted Dr. Maxwell a 2009 Family Advocate of the Year.
The cost to attend the session is $15. Please contact the Seton Montessori Institute at Institute@SetonMontessori.org or (630) 654-0151 to register.
