As part of the Saratoga Springs City School District's Parent University program, author and clinical psychologist Adelia Moore will present findings from her book "Being the Grownup: Love, Limits, and the Natural Authority of Parenthood." This event will take place in the Large Group Instruction Room at Maple Avenue Middle School at 6:30 pm on Thursday, January 23rd. The author's presentation will be followed by a book signing.

If you are a parent, it is your job to provide shelter and safety, to make decisions about education, childcare, health and nourishment, and to create the habitat that is the context of family life. The book helps parents translate their determination to care for and protect their children into the clarity they need to communicate authority with a firm confidence, whether for bedtime, screen-time or mealtime. Just as she would in a clinical conversation, the author shifts the focus away from disciplinary strategies and back to the core of parenthood, the relationship between parents and children as it evolves, moment-to-moment, from the dependence of infancy to the autonomy of young adulthood.
