Darien - Are you tired of yelling at the kids? Do you dream of just one day with no arguing or whining? Are you tired of fighting against the TV world that rewards disrespectful behavior with a laugh track? Have you read every parenting book on the planet and yet nothing ever changes? If your answer is "yes" to any of these questions, then this event is for you.

The Moms Connect Group of St. John Lutheran Church, located at 7214 South Cass Avenue in Darien, will sponsor a free Parenting Workshop open to the community on Saturday, April 27, from 9-11am. 

The topic will be “Respectful Kids.” The featured speaker will be Dr. Todd Cartmell, Child Psychologist. Complimentary childcare will be provided.

After you enjoy a complimentary breakfast, Dr. Cartmell, will help you as a mom, dad, grandparent or legal guardian transform kids' disrespectful behavior into new respectful habits that will change the dynamics of your family. Learn power-packed biblical strategies for teaching respectful behavior, turning on respectful behavior and turning off disrespectful behavior.

Filled with humor and practical ideas that you can use right away, Dr. Cartmell will show you how to teach your kids the right lessons, the right way.

Dr. Cartmell practices in Wheaton. He received his doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary and is the author of five faith-based parenting books, including 8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids.
