From surviving perilous run-ins with the Russian mafia and the Soviet military, to searching for his lost heritage in a remote village, David’s story is a riveting coming-of-age memoir.

Modern Parenting

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Tuesday, November 4 (7:30pm)

Jennifer Senior - All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood
Carla Naumburg, PhD - Parenting in the Present Moment

In conversation with Jeanne Lovy, Assistant Vice President, Young Children and Families, JCCs of Greater Boston

A road map for today’s parent. Two notable authors explore the world of parenting from both sides.  Naumburg shares what truly matters in parenting – connecting with children in ways that are meaningful to them, staying grounded and being present.  Award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior isolates the many ways children reshape their parents’ lives. She argues that changes in the last half century have radically altered the roles of today’s parents, making their mandates more complex and less clear. 

Co-sponsored by the JCC Early Learning Centers. Refreshments after the presentation.
