“The Parenting Doctor” Coming to Corvallis

The Parenting Success Network will host a free seminar “Pocketful of Feelings” with nationally recognized speaker Dr. Ann Corwin Monday, May 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Linus Pauling Middle School, 1111 Cleveland Ave., Corvallis.

Known to many as “The Parenting Doctor,” Corwin uses decades of experience in parenting consulting and child development education to help thousands of families around the world.

Parenting questions on how to help children manage their feelings often arise. How do we teach a three year old they can’t hit another child? How do we respond to a preschooler’s tantrums? How do we handle teen sulking?

Research shows that emotional literacy helps children succeed in school and become more productive members of society. Corwin teaches a three-step process to help parents lead their child to take charge of their feelings, with a focus on emotional literacy, defined as the nurturing of a child’s emotional and social skills that ultimately ensure overall health, academic achievement and well-being.

Free onsite childcare is available by calling 541-917-4899 by 5 p.m. Thursday, May 15. Sign-ups after that date will be first-come, first-serve.

The seminar is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Parenting Success Network, Mullins Charitable Funds, Linn-Benton Community College Parenting Education, the Corvallis School District, Corvallis Kiwanis Noon Club and additional organizations throughout the mid-valley.
