Dr. Wendy Mogel, acclaimed psychologist, parenting expert, and bestselling author, will give a free public lecture at Baylor School on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. in the Alumni Chapel.
Dr. Mogel’s topic will cover issues related to “hyper-parenting” and the “temptation to overindulge, overschedule and overprotect children.” A clinical psychologist specializing in parenting, Dr. Mogel is the author of the New York Times bestselling books The Blessing of a Skinned Knee and The Blessing of a B Minus. She is a frequent guest on The Today Show and is regularly interviewed by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and NPR.

“Baylor is at the forefront of best practices in education and we are delighted to have Dr. Mogel on our campus. I believe that parents, educators and anyone who works with children and teens will benefit from hearing her perspective and expertise,” said Baylor Headmaster Scott Wilson.
Dr. Mogel’s presentation will be from 7-8: 30 p.m., and includes a question and answer session and book-signing. The event is sponsored by Baylor School and the Baylor Parent Alliance and is free and open to the public.
