Pinecrest Academy in Cumming, GA, will host nationally known author, syndicated columnist and family psychologist John Rosemond in September for two speaking engagements. Rosemond is known for his sound advice and relaxed style and is one of America’s busiest and most popular public speakers.
Rosemond will speak on “Parenting with Love and Leadership” on Monday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. and “Understanding and Managing Your Teenager” on Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. at Pinecrest Academy. Both engagements will take place in the Upper School Gym. The events are open to the community and free to all, with donations encouraged. Guests may register online.
“Parenting with Love and Leadership” is a humorous, thought-provoking seminar where Rosemond describes the contemporary parenting conundrum in clear, compelling terms, and then describes a practical, tested solution, using what he said children need adults to provide to them: love and leadership.
In “Understanding and Managing Your Teenager,” Rosemond describes a macro-management style that focuses on the “Six C’s of Teen-Proofing”: curfew, cash, car, conflict, consequences and colleagues (a.k.a. co-conspirators). According to Rosemund, this parenting style all but ensures that teens will take responsible control of their own destinies during the most significant years of their childhoods and approach emancipation with confidence and purpose.
“Parenting is both joyful and challenging, and that’s why we are honored to host Mr. John Rosemond for two speaking engagements designed to equip parents with practical ways to lead their children with love,” said Jake Rodgers, Pinecrest Academy head of school.
Rosemond has authored over 20 books on parenting, family life and faith, including his recently released “The Bible Parenting Code.” He has been writing a nationally syndicated parenting column for over 35 years that appears in over 200 newspapers. Some of Rosemond’s books include: “The Well-Behaved Child, “Making the Terrible Twos Terrific” and “Teen Proofing.”
