Wednesday, August 23, 2017

The Montessori School announced that as part of its ongoing Parent Education Program, Dr. Charles Fay will present on “Love & Logic” at the Bessie Smith Hall on Friday, Sept. 22, from 7-9 p.m.

Dr. Fay is an internationally recognized author and public speaker, as well as CEO of the Love and Logic Institute. Millions of educators, mental health professionals, and parents world-wide have benefited from his practical approach to the most common and frustrating behaviors displayed by youth of all ages. These solutions come directly from years of research and clinical experience serving youth and their families in schools and homes.

“Love & Logic” is a system of tools meant to help parents and educators raise self-confident, motivated children who are ready for the real world. Children are approached with empathy, assisted in making good, healthy choices, and encouraged to learn responsibility for their actions. Teachers at The Montessori School find that using the techniques in the classroom helps the children become more confident and creative.

Free tickets for the Charles Fay event can be reserved at www.eventbrite.com, by searching “Charles Fay” in Chattanooga. Tickets are limited, so it is advised to reserve soon. Donations will be accepted at the venue.
