Parenting Series at L’Chaim Center

Raising our Children to Care

Parenting Discussions with Amy Elconin Hertzberg and Lisa Kaplin at the L’Chaim Center

2015-2016

familyIn today’s fast-paced and frenzied world, we often lack the spiritual foundation and the practical tools to raise children who truly care. This series focuses on how to raise responsible children who integrate gratitude, compassion, self-control and self-esteem into their daily lives. When parents integrate these tools into their lives not only do children become more responsible but parents feel happier, more in control, and more gratified with family life.

Time: 7:30 to 9:00 pm
Location: L’Chaim Center
Address: 405 Lake Cook Rd. STE 207 in the Deerfield Lake Plaza
