Ever wish you could participate in a book club from the comfort of your own couch, with a mug of your favourite steamy beverage in hand? Now you can!
I'm joining forces with VoicED Radio to host a four-week online book club focusing on Parenting Through the Storm (my guide to parenting a child who is struggling with a mental health, neurodevelopmental, or behavioural challenge).
Each Sunday night at 8 pm ET, I'll be zeroing on one of the key themes discussed in the book and inviting a special guest to chat with me. Here's a sneak preview of who I've invited and what we'll be talking about.
- On November 12, I'll be chatting with Claire Kerr-Zlobin, Founder and Program Director of Life With A Baby, about self-compassion and self-care.
- On November 19, I'll be chatting with Kimberley Moran, CEO of Children’s Mental Health Ontario, about parenting a child who is struggling.
- On November 26, I'll be chatting with child and youth mental health advocate Michelle Sparling about the importance of reaching out for support when your child is struggling.
- On December 3, I'll be chatting with Kim Peterson, co-creator of the Ontario Special Needs Roadmap, on how to be a strong advocate for your child.
I hope you'll plan to tune in to the discussion (you can listen in via this link) and to participate in the Twitter discussion as well.
And, just to be clear, this is a 100% guilt-free book club. You don't have to read the book in order to be involved. (Because what parent needs more guilt in their life, right?)
