Discipline 101: For Beginning Parents (And Those Who Could Use a Review)

Join Don Fontana on Tuesday, May 24 in the Convent Dining Room (Saint Anne Church) from 7:00-8:00 PM to enjoy this FORMED presentation. In this conversation, Dr. Ray Guarendi lays down some basic principles of discipline, including the idea that parents need to rely on consistency and common sense. With humor and wit, he gives lots of stories and examples and warns of foibles to avoid. Great for parents who need a pep talk and excellent for further discussions about discipline.  Dr. Ray is a clinical psychologist, author, professional speaker, and national radio and television host. His radio show, “The Dr. Is In” can be heard on over 440 stations and Sirius XM. His TV show, “Living Right with Dr. Ray” is aired in 140 countries.
