To help parents of children and teens of all ages, North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center is hosting a workshop by renowned psychotherapist and parenting expert Sean Grover titled “When Kids Call the Shots: Stop Being a Bullied Parent.” The workshop will be held at the Guidance Center’s Roslyn Heights headquarters on Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to noon.

“If your child is pummeling you with demands and behaving disrespectfully, you’re not alone,” said Grover, author of the acclaimed parenting book When Kids Call the Shots. “It’s not at all uncommon for today’s kids and teens to boss their parents and even their teachers around. And it’s not only bad for the adults. Children who bully their parents suffer emotional, social and academic problems.”

The good news is that it’s never too late—or too early—to stop this behavior in its tracks and make parenting a pleasure again.
Grover, who has been featured on The Today Show and in Publisher’s Weekly and U.S. News & World Report, will provide practical, empowering and motivating advice to parents of children of
all ages on how to stop surrendering their parenting role to their children and better manage their own fears and anxieties by providing stronger leadership in their family. “When parents regain control, everyone benefits,” said Grover.

His workshop will cover many topics of interest, including:
• Learning how your own history shapes your parenting choices
• Identifying your parenting style and fortifying your leadership
• Discovering the three most common bullying styles among children
• Seeing how family or school dilemmas often trigger bullying in children
• Gathering support and putting an end to disrespectful bully behaviors

Registration is required. Contact Nicole Oberheim at 516-626-1971, ext. 337, or email
