I recently came across a very impressive blogger, Adina Sokolof who has a blog, ParentingSimply where she writes short parenting tips and inspiration that are based on the writings of some of the best Parenting literature in the field: How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk, Siblings Without Rivalry and Raising a Spirited Child. If you are a parent and haven’t read these parenting books already, I highly recommend them – they will make a great addition to your reading library and change your life for the better. You can find them on Amazon here.
Since I know that most of my readers are moms, just like me, with kids of varying ages at home I figured you would benefit from and enjoy Adina’s work as much as I do. She is offering an online Master Parenting Seminar this summer based on the philosophies of the above books. While the seminar should serve to improve your parenting skills, professionals can also use it towards 4 CEU credits from the State of Ohio, Counselor, Social Worker and Marriage & Family Therapist Board.

Here’s what Adina has to say about the seminar and her work:
“Parents come up to me a lot and say, I go to parenting classes and I read the books. I start using the skill I have accumulated but then I slide. In the heat of the moment I say things I don’t want to say, I parent the way I don’t want to parent.
The same thing has happened to me. I don’t always parent perfectly. I have my good and bad days. Just ask my kids,
my husband and the lady in CVS who heard me becoming exasperated with my daughter.
The one thing that truly helps me is to keep my skills fresh. I keep on going to classes and I review what I already
know and I always try to learn new skills. I like to explore new parenting philosophies and see if any one of they speaks to you.
That is the uniqueness of ParentingSimply.com. We want to give parents the skills they need to parent effectively. We don’t stop there. Every person needs to parent according to what works best for them, their personality and their kid’s temperament. We want to help you explore different ways and learn new techniques to help you be the best parent you can be. ”
