Here's a look at some of the events happening around town this week:
Larkspur psychologist Madeline Levine, Ph.D., has no problem with parents who dote on their children, but keep it in perspective, she advises. Levine has been a practicing clinical psychologist in Marin County for the past 25 years. She is the author of Viewing Violence and See No Evil: A Guide to Protecting Our Children from Media Violence.
Levine brings her latest book, Teach Your Children Well: Parenting for Authentic Success, to Book Passage in Corte Madera on Monday at 7 p.m. This new book is a toolbox for parents, providing information, relevant research and a series of exercises to help parents clarify a definition of success in line with their own values as well as their children’s interests and abilities. Teach Your Children Well is a must-read for parents and educators.
