Challenging the Myth of the Perfect Child



The Clinical Social Work Association of Savannah and Jewish Family Services of Savannah presents Challenging the Myth of the Perfect Child: A Look at Personality and Applications for Parenting, Tuesday, October 28 at 7:00 p.m. at the Jewish Educational Alliance

There is no one “right way” to productively communicate with our children. Good parents come in many styles, each one bringing strengths to parenting. Keeping in mind that a child’s personality may be different than his or her parents begs the question: how does a parent’s personality interact with their child’s and therefore impact parenting techniques and strategies?

On October 28th at the Jewish Educational Alliance, Joan Dane- Kellogg, LCSW and Louisa Laird, LCSW will help guide participants through the basic concepts of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and how to apply them to the parenting process. Discussed will be how each of the 16 personality types has a distinctive way of relating to the world and making decisions. Understanding these can bring insight to ourselves and our children’s attitudes and behavior. With practical ideas and real-life examples, participants will focus on recognizing traits among the types and how to adapt parenting styles and communication accordingly.

Join us for an educational and enlightening evening as we share ideas about families and parenting.

Free and Open to the Public.
