Community, Nonprofits and Businesses sharing Information
Last night, we hosted Bill Corbett and 150 parents and professionals at Ansonia High School. The response to Bill’s presentation was phenomenal. The audience was fully engaged for two hours, made notes, and stayed after for questions. I wanted to recommend him to you – for your own trainings and reading. His venture - Cooperative Kids - gives parents simple tools to deal with the tricky issue(s) of discipline (and parental sanity). In my years of teaching and counseling, I’ve never heard anyone do it better. We paid for the evening as part of TEAM’s work in the area of family strengthening and parent outreach. There was no charge for anyone attending the presentation, and childcare and refreshments were available. We also owe thanks to the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven for their financial support of the sponsor – our Valley Family Resource Center at TEAM.
We don’t normally promote a vendor, but believe Bill is an exceptional conveyer of skills and understanding that so many young parents crave. He has a website and materials including CDs: www.StopTheTantrums.com . Of his book “Love, Limits, & Lessons”, David Morgan, our VP for Early Education, said: “I learned of Bill Corbett through a referral from a very active parent/contributor of our agency – once I listened/read Bill’s work and heard accounts from other parents of his presentation style, I wanted to secure him for part of our work around parent support and education.”
