I won't be able to attend but l love this woman's approach to practical parenting. Take advantage if you can.

While tonight's lecture looks like it is focus on teachers, I'm still
anticipating that I will learn something new as a parent tonight.
This is free, so I hope that lots of people take advantage.    - Liz
