Does the added stress of being at home bring added battles with your child? Do you wish you knew how to get cooperation without yelling and threats? Are you trying to find the sweet spot between spoiling and strict? No one is prepared to parent through a pandemic. As school starts, and we are all still at home, fostering cooperation and learning independence are more important than ever. Clinical psychologist Dr. Laura Markham helps parents shift away from control and manipulation to practical strategies for raising children who WANT to cooperate. She helps parents create a more peaceful home where affection, connection and humor help resolve conflict happily, and where kids WANT to follow our lead.

Her parenting advice frequently appears in national media and through her website, AhaParenting.com​, ​which serves up Aha! Moments for parents of babies through teens. Dr. Markham is the author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids: How to Stop Yelling and Start Connecting, Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings: How to Stop the Fighting and Raise Friends for Life, and her latest book, The Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids Workbook: Using mindfulness and connection to raise resilient, joyful children and rediscover your love of parenting. She is the mother of two grown children.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
