• PARENT BOOK CLUB

    Join us for the Tamanend Parent Book Club.  This year, we will be reading The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans (2017) by Josh Shipp which may be purchased on a variety of websites or in bookstores.  The book describes the optimal mindsets, conditions, and strategies that help teenagers succeed.  This book club will follow a "no-pressure" format in which the facilitator will present a summary of the reading and open the floor for discussion.  In addition, we will briefly cover items from our monthly Parent Council meeting for parents who are not able to make these meetings.  We will share resources and ideas with the goal of helping the entire Tamanend parent community navigate the challenges and joys of raising adolescents.

    SCHEDULE:

    Meetings are held at 6:30 in the Tamanend Library
