    Next Parent Book Group - May 23rd:
    "Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys"
    ... by Dan Kindlon and Michael Thompson
    In the book Raising Cain two leading child psychologists, Dan Kindlon, Ph.D. and Michael Thompson, Ph.D.,share what they have learned from working with boys and their families in over thirty-five years combined experience.  They emphasize teaching our sons “emotional literacy” to assist them in steering through the social pressures they often confront.  Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence, states that “Raising Cain gives a long-needed insight into that mysterious, magical land, the psyches of boys.Every parent, teacher—or anyone who wants boys to flourish—they should read this book.”
    Please join us on May 23rd to discuss this valuable book.If you can’t join us, I highly recommend that you include it on your list of “must-reads” for the near future.
