Event Description
The Author & Speaker Series: Katherine Reynolds Lewis

In our highly connected age, children have less self-control than ever. About half of the current generation of children will develop a mood or behavioral disorder or a substance addiction by age eighteen. Our old discipline tools--punishments and rewards--no longer work to instill independence and responsibility in kids.

Journalist and parenting expert Katherine Reynolds Lewis saw this crisis of self-regulation develop over 14 years of facilitating her synagogue's sexuality retreat for ninth graders. Her solution: The Apprenticeship Model, a new theory of discipline that centers on learning the art of self-control. Blending new scientific research and powerful individual stories of change, Lewis shows that, if we trust our children to face consequences, they will learn to adapt and moderate their own behavior. She watches as chaotic homes become peaceful, bewildered teachers see progress, and her own family evolves. You'll recognize your own family in Lewis's sensitive, realistic stories, and you'll find a path to making everyone in your home more capable, kinder, and happier--including yourself.
