Event Description

Ron Sabatelli, a professor of human development and family studies at the University of Connecticut will discuss contemporary parenting and parenthood on Monday, April 20,  at 7:15 p.m. at the Wallingford Public Library on North Main Street.

The talk – free and open to the public --   is sponsored by the library, the Meriden branch of the American Association of University Women and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UCONN.

Sabatelli will discuss contemporary views of motherhood and fatherhood, varying stresses faced by parents in less and more educated families, and the increase in anxiety among parents today as they determine how to best prepare their children for the future. Sabatelli will present interesting information from his own research and discuss trends recognized by scholars in the social sciences.

Audience participation will be encouraged.

“We are thrilled to have Dr. Sabatelli back  in Wallingford since his talk on the changing role of women two years ago was incredibly well received and popular,” said Karen A. Grava, president of the Meriden branch of the AAUW.  “This talk will be universal in that anyone who is a child, parent or future parent will find it compelling.”

For more information, please contact the library at 203-265-6754.

LISC CEO is an ImpactAlpha “Agent of Impact”

ImpactAlpha has named Maurice A. Jones, president and CEO of LISC, one of their "agents of change," citing the organization's extraordinary success attracting capital in the wake of the pandemic to fund minority- and women-owned small businesses and underinvested communities hit hardest by Covid's fallout. “If this is a real commitment for long-term patient capital to invest in these communities," says Jones in the article, "there is no question in my mind that we can collectively achieve much greater economic mobility."
