Hi everyone,

I've been getting some calls, and it's clear I haven't done a good job on being CLEAR on what's happening with the meetup coming up on the 30th. My bad!

SO, here's the scoop:

Tuesday, Oct 30, I'll be teaching "Planful Parenting," the first class in my Parenting the Millennium Kids series. We'll be doing it at the Joint Venture Churches and they will be providing dinner (mac and cheese) and childcare. This class is FREE, although the church would appreciate a small donation, from those who can afford it, to help pay for the food and childcare. Dinner will be served at 6, the talk will start at 6:30 and go until 8:00.

Here's a little "blurb" about that talk:

"What's the Goal, Here?"

In this workshop, we'll take a deep breath and think about what kinds of skill sets our children will need to survive and thrive in this rapidly changing world. We'll talk about what the research tells us about how children learn, the most important concepts they need to acquire and the kinds of 21st Century parenting skills we're going to need in order to teach them. And then, well, we'll make big plans for the money, time, and environments we'll need to accomplish our goals for our children and ourselves."


Tuesday, November 6, I'll be teaching "Self-Parenting: First, Adjust Your Own Oxygen Mask," the second talk in the series. We'll be doing it at my office, Child & Family Counseling Group, 3880 S. Bascom, San Jose (near Good Samaritan Hospital, off Hwy. 85). And, for this talk there will be a small fee: $25 per person or $30 per couple. No child care or dinner I'm afraid. We'll start at 7pm and go til 8:30. This talk stands on it's own, so you don't HAVE to go to the first one in order to go to this one. I do have a recording of Planful Parenting, though, for those who want to "catch up."

Tuesday, November 13, I'll continue with the 3rd workshop in the series, at my office, for $25 per person, same deal. We'll continue with this schedule for two more talks. For those who want to take the whole class, this means your total fee would be $100. For those who have been court-ordered to take a 6-week class, I'm offering a final session of personal coaching, done individually and at your convenience, at my usual fee of $150. Blurbs about each talk in the series will be posted on the meetup group. You can also find them on my website at

Okay? If you still have questions, feel free to email or call.
