与孩子有效沟通:案例专场

11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

很多父母希望能够尊重孩子,形成与孩子相互尊重的良好关系。然而一旦把尊重落实到日常生活的具体细节上,还是会遇到许多困惑,尤其是在跟孩子进行沟通方面,往往阻碍最大。所以我们说:沟通是个技术活。 无效沟通往往适得其反,有效沟通则能事半功倍。 学会有效沟通,让孩子信任父母,乐于跟父母倾诉、对话、商议、合作。

儿童教育专家小巫,是去年PCE年会的主讲嘉宾,演讲主题围绕着有效亲子沟通模式,重点介绍了P.E.T.父母效能训练的基本原理,并且通过现场征集的案例,向大家展示了如何倾听孩子和如何表达父母的需求。去年的讲座令很多会员耳目一新,同时也感到意犹未尽,想进一步了解有效亲子沟通的具体实用原理。今年我们再次请来小巫为我们开一次案例专场,通过真实的场景,手把手地教习我们亲子沟通的窍门,让孩子跟我们更贴心。被看见、被理解、被接纳,是每一个人最基本的内在需求。懂得如何满足这种需求,就是修炼最高境界的爱。

讲员介绍: 小巫,美籍儿童教育专家,两个孩子的妈妈;毕业于北京大学,Rutgers大学教育学硕士,清华大学特聘讲师,北京南山华德福学校联合发起人兼特约顾问;开创艺术养育父母培训课程,创办小巫养育学堂网络课堂,创立家庭联结力沟通模式;著有《让孩子做主》《接纳孩子》《小巫教你讲故事》等十余本畅销书;开发故事工作坊、想象力工作坊、游戏工作坊、十二感官工作坊等系列课程;当选新浪教育首届中国榜样家长。

时间: 2017年11月11日星期六晚 6:30 9:00 pm

 Conference: 14th Annual Parenting Conference

Conference

父母子女俱乐部第十四届子女教育研讨暨年会

真正的成功:培育能在充满挑战的世界里健康向上的孩子

特邀演讲嘉宾: 宾大医学院儿科教授Kenneth Ginsburg

2017 年10 月14 日 星期六, 下午 12:00点 至 5:00点

Windsor Athletic Club (WAC)
Clarksville Rd, West Windsor Township, NJ 08550

此次讲座将讨论如何激发和培养孩子对学习的热爱而不是对失败的惧怕,以促进他们取得卓越的成就。永远不要忘记,我们养育孩子的目标是让孩子成长为快乐而对社会有贡献的人。讲座讨论促进紧密的家庭关系的沟通方法,让家长能够与孩子有良好的关系,更好的支持到孩子。这意味着学业成绩尽管重要,它也只是衡量成功的标准之一。孩子需要具有情商和社交能力,才可能在家庭和工作中蓬勃发展。他们需要保持和发展他们的创造性和创新潜能,以及内在的韧性。孩子被推得太厉害,就无法发现自己的天赋,并趋于完美主义。完美主义者无法接纳自己,享受不到高成就带来的快乐,事实上这窒息了他们自己的创造性。Ginsburg教授将讨论大学录取过程,重点强调引导孩子找到适合自己的教育与学校。讲座的主题是培养能为世界做出独特与巨大贡献的成功孩子。

宾大医学院儿科教授Kenneth Ginsburg,专长于青少年行为和心理健康, Boys & Girls Clubs of America的韧性专家,曾获多个奖项并出版多部专著,包括在美国儿科学会出版的《Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Kids Roots and Wings》和《Raising Kids to Thrive: Balancing Love With Expectations and Protection With Trust》。他的临诊实践、教学、科研、以及社会活动都围绕着一个统一的主题:通过提高青少年的内在韧性来打造他们的强项。他致力于将研究和临诊中所获知的东西尽可能转化为日常实践中的方法,以便让父母, 专业人士、和社区来培养孩子的韧性。

年会的第二部分青少年实话实说是每年俱乐部年会的亮点,很受家长及青少年的欢迎。几个青少年将对家长们普遍关心的一些问题分享他们的想法。

我们鼓励青少年与他们的父母一起参加本次研讨会, 这样更有助于父母和孩子共同的有效学习和提高。

14th Annual Parenting Conference

Authentic Success: Raising Children and Adolescents
Who are Prepared to Thrive in a Challenging World

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg

SATRUDAY OCTOBER 14, 2017, 12:00 pm 5:00 pm

Location: Windsor Athletic Club (WAC)
Clarksville Rd, West Windsor Township, NJ 08550

This talk discusses how to foster high achievement in children while instilling a love of learning, rather than a fear of failure. We must never forget that our goal in raising children is to prepare them to be happy and productive adults. This talk will cover the essentials of communication that foster close family relationships and position parents to be optimally supportive and close with their children. Furthermore, this means that academic performance, while important, is only one measure of success. Children need the emotional and social intelligence to thrive in the home and workplace. They need to maintain and develop their creativity and innovative potential as well as their internal resilience. Children who are pushed too hard do not discover their gift and are driven to perfectionism. Perfectionists do not find themselves acceptable and dont experience the joy associated with high performance, and in fact stifle their own creativity. The college admissions process will be discussed and the importance of guiding each child to find the right educational match will be emphasized. This seminar is about raising successful children who will make their unique and substantial contributions to the world.

About Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg: Kenneth R. Ginsburg, MD, MS Ed, FAAP, is an award winning author and a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. Additionally, He serves as the external National Resilience Expert for The Boys and Girls Club of America and works with National Congress of American Indians in its efforts to build resilience in indigenous youths. His most recent books include, Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Kids Roots and Wings, and Raising Kids to Thrive: Balancing Love with Expectations and Protection with Trust, both published by The American Academy of Pediatrics. The theme that ties together his clinical practice, teaching, research and advocacy efforts is that of building on the strengths of teenagers by fostering their internal resilience. He strives to translate the best of what is known from research and practice into practical approaches that parents, professionals and communities can use to build resilience.

爸爸去哪儿第二季:父亲在家庭教育中的作用

11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

哈佛大学研究发现:人生下来有两个发展方向,一个是亲密性,母亲在这方面具有天然优势;一个是开放性,这方面父亲具有天然优势。如果说母性教育是一种根的教育,目标是使生命滋润丰满,那么父性教育则是一种主干的教育,目标是建立人生的主心骨。 心理学家弗洛姆说:父亲是教育孩子、向孩子指出通往世界之路的人。

家长遇到的常见问题讨论会

11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

Panelists: 廖冰老师, 徐建平, 王卓, 张景山

养育孩子,一路走来,或许你常常困惑,因为有些育儿难题对你来说是小菜一碟,有些却又会觉得好像遇到过不去的坎,怎么都跟孩子说不通,很不得把孩子揪过来把ta脑子里想的都重新program一遍?

还是你常常觉得一波未平一波又起山外有山,总没有喘口气放下心的时候,更没有冲浪滑雪的享受和自在?

父母子女教育俱乐部第十三届教育研讨暨年会

父母效能训练

特邀演讲嘉宾: 儿童教育专家 小巫

2016 年10 月15 日 星期六, 下午 12:00点 至 5:30点

Crown Plaza, 2055 Lincoln Highway, Edison, NJ 08817

流行语云投胎是个技术活。

从某种意义上讲,孩子投胎到哪一类父母手中,的确奠定了他(她)这辈子生命质量的基调。 不过,能看到这篇公告的父母,估计都是比较关心孩子生命质量的,也就是说,孩子投胎投对了地方!

只是,这样一来,挑战就落到了父母肩上:即便下定决心无条件地爱孩子、尊重孩子,而一旦落实到日常生活的具体细节上,还是会遇到许多困惑,尤其是在跟孩子进行沟通方面,往往阻碍最大。

所以我们说:沟通是个技术活。 无效沟通往往适得其反,有效沟通则能事半功倍。 学会有效沟通,让孩子信任父母,乐于跟父母倾诉、对话、商议、合作。

为了建设良好的亲子关系,PCE今年夏天起开展了PET父母效能训练读书会,很多成员从读书和切磋中获益,讨论精彩纷呈。 本期年会,我们请到儿童教育专家小巫,通过具体的场景和案例,向与会者详细讲解亲子沟通的窍门,让孩子跟我们更贴心。

演讲流程:

  • 1、征集与会者最迫切希望解决的沟通问题,尤其是具体场景;
  • 2、通过演习,发现常见沟通杀手;
  • 3、直观学习戈登模式,学会遇到问题先戈登一下;
  • 4、通过实际案例演习,初步了解如何帮助处在问题区的孩子;
  • 5、通过实际案例演习,初步了解在遇到不可接纳行为时,如何表达自己;
  • 6、通过实际案例演习,初步了解如何用更有效的方式解决冲突;
  • 7、最后,初步了解如何在无问题区增进亲子关系。

讲员介绍: 小巫,美籍儿童教育专家,十余本畅销书作者,两个孩子的妈妈。从事儿童教育、亲子关系和父母成长的研究、咨询以及培训事业16年,开创艺术养育父母培训课程,创办小巫养育学堂网络课堂。

毕业于北京大学,美国 Rutgers大学教育学硕士,美国 P.E.T.父母效能训练课程暨T.E.T. 教师训练课程英文讲师,完成三年制华德福中小学教师培训并曾于小学和初中任教。著有《让孩子做主》《接纳孩子》《小巫教你讲故事》《小巫教你编故事》等 10 余本畅销书籍,译著《无条件养育》,曾为多家杂志,网络,电视节目等媒体担任专家,返美定居前,在全国各地开办讲座和工作坊,深受年轻父母欢迎。

年会的第二部分青少年实话实说是每年俱乐部年会的亮点,很受家长及青少年的欢迎。几个青少年将对家长们普遍关心的一些问题分享他们的想法。

我们鼓励青少年与他们的父母一起参加本次研讨会, 这样更有助于父母和孩子共同的有效学习和提高。

Fishbowl Forum participants (teenagers and recent graduates):

Amber Lin is a sophomore at Princeton University, pursuing a degree in civil and environmental engineering and architecture. She plans to pursue a career in the sustainable design of urban infrastructure, but is also interested in the bigger picture of mitigating climate changeand how science, industry, and government will have to work together to achieve an environmentally sustainable society. Her current research focus in on rammed earth architecture at Princetons Form Finding Lab, and she spent this past summer designing and constructing a spiraling rammed earth gazebo in Princeton'''' organic garden. She recently published an article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists titled "Natural Gas as a Transition Fuel: A bridge too far?", leads the student group Princeton University Energy Association, and works as an intern at the Princeton Office of Sustainability. On campus, Amber is also involved in the Glee Club, contemporary female acappella group the Tigressions, and the Opera Company. Outside of school, she is a competitive bridge player and represented the USA on the Girls Team at the 16th World Youth Bridge Championship in Italy this summer.

Jaron Ge Being a Chinese, one would think of me as an all honors student, getting straight As with a future career as a doctor or lawyer. That isnt me. As all my friends are studying for their next test, Im out in the fields baking in the sun, doing my job as a baseball umpire. I remember one day as I was walking to my designated field to fill in a spot for an absent umpire, I found out that my partner was a 70-year old federated professional umpire. As I approached him, he sort of gave me this look, as if he was wondering if I was the actual umpire. His face turned into a mixture of confusion and shock, looking as if he was saying that they just couldnt find anybody better to be his partner. He started off with giving me his expectations that if I was going to work with him, I would have to follow this rule and that. I suppose he thought I was new to the whole thing, because he never saw someone like me umpiring a baseball game. Eventually, after an hour into the game with awkward silence between us two during the breaks, he finally talked. The first words out of his mouth were You have a good eye. Everyone thought that kid was safe, but you saw the half second between his foot hitting the base and the ballGood call. That loosened me up a lot, as he asked What grade are you in? Im 15 and a sophomore. Yeah, you look young, how long youve been umping for? Around 3 years He told me about his son who enlisted in the Army after graduating from college. I told him that the college Im interested in was West Point. I guess this was an eye opener for him, as he let out a really long Ohh reaaaalllyyy? Being the skinny kid and Asian, West Point was the last college he would have guessed. Then a big smile appeared on his wrinkled face, You are different, you know? I wish you all the best! I smiled back to him: Yes, thank you! Im proud to be an atypical ABC (American Born Chinese), and I wish more and more ABCs will dare to be different and be themselves, so that the mainstream people wont stereotype us Asian Americans as nerds. We are Americans just like any others.

Jeffrey GU I do not believe in stereotype. Do what you enjoy and excel at what youre good at. I did not discover my passions at an early age like many modern Americans, but matured into them through a tedious system of trial and error. I am a current high school junior at Hopkins School in New Haven, Connecticut. Ive served two years as a grade-wide Representative and likewise as a staff member aboard the school newspaper, The Razor. In the 2015-2016 school year, I took a Leave of Absence from Hopkins in order to follow a passion in playing ice hockey. For eight months, I lodged with a Junior A hockey team in a small town in Ontario, Canada, away from family and friends. During that time, I lived in four different houses, had five different head coaches, trained five hours daily (four hours on-ice, one hour gym), participated in assorted community service, completed online school work, and played games on the weekends Im a stronger person for having experienced the world outside my bubble. I am authoring a book on my experiences and currently balancing a blog with my Hopkins workload. I will be participating in the annual Princeton Model Congress this year and am looking forward to playing an increasingly active role in politics.

Megan Pan I am currently a rising junior at the Pingry School, and my interests lie mostly in the humanities. Writing is one of my passions, and I have won several writing awards both in school-wide and national contests. Within my school community, I am an assistant editor of the school newspaper and captain of the Creative Writing Club. Having trained public speaking ever since childhood, I have competed both in the Poetry-Out-Loud recitation competition as a state finalist and in the William Paterson Poetry Contest, a multilingual poetry recitation contest, as the recipient of first place winner in the Native Chinese category. I am also very active in the schools drama program, and I have held a leadership position in the schools K-Pop dance club. Growing up as a person of Chinese heritage in America, I have always been interested in exploring different cultures. I enjoy traveling, and over the course of the past two years, I have toured cities in France on a school trip, studied Japanese as part of a homestay, and interned while living independently in China.

Roger Zou - is a senior at Harvard University concentrating in Computer Science, with a secondary in Psychology. He has previously worked as a software engineering intern at Google and Square, and was a Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Bryers Engineering Fellow. He is heavily involved with the Computer Science community on campus, having served as President of the Harvard Computer Society and HackHarvard, the annual intercollegiate hackathon at Harvard. Board games, music, and anime take up most of his spare time.

2016 Annual Parenting Conference

Parent effectiveness training

Keynote Speaker: Yanhong Wheeler

SATRUDAY OCTOBER 15, 2016, 12:00 pm 5:30 pm

Crown Plaza, 2055 Lincoln Highway, Edison, NJ 08817

As Chinese, we are no strangers to the idea that children are born into a loving and nurturing family because they have good karma. Luckily, if you are reading this announcement, chances are your concern for the welfare of your children is so strong that you are willing to sacrifice your personal time to learn more about good parenting. Then your children are to be congratulated of good karma: they are born into the right family. However, we often hear parents proclaim loudly that this karmic score failed the reality test because despite of their best of intentions, their children dont seem to get on their good side most of the time. Its truly frustrating to even have a conversation with their kids!

Thats why we think parents should put the karmic test to rest and get to know the complementary principal notion of karma, Dharma, in our parenting world. Karma in Sanskrit means what goes around comes around while Dharma means the right way of living or our duty in life. Yes, the secret of a happy household boils down to one thing: the change of our inner soul mood, the right way of speaking with our children. Because if we cant have effective communication with our children, our mere effort to express ourselves creates division and breaks our connection with them. And if we manage effective communication, we bring solutions to crisis and strengthen life-sustaining love. Thus the wisdom of effective communication is often exulted as Dharma of parenting. If we obtain it, our destiny seems to have changed as reflected by how our children treat us: they will trust us, love to share their thoughts with us, and willing to cooperate with us.

The PCE Club started a Parent Effective Training (P.E.T) book club this summer to learn from Dr. Thomas Gordons seminal book on the subject, which was first published in 1962 and has sold over four million copies since. The book club engaged in frequent online discussion of real life challenges faced by hundreds of members and the solutions proposed by the book as well as members are very inspiring. To further our understanding and mastery of the concepts and tactics introduced by Dr. Gordon, we have invited a well-known parenting expert and certified P.E.T. instructor, Yanhong Wheeler (penname Xiao Wu or Weewitch), to be our keynote speaker. She will demonstrate, with role-playing and case studies in a workshop form, what effective parent-child communication entails in real life. We hope all of us can learn the P.E.T. Dharma, the divine way out of disharmonious parenting karma, from this event.

About Yanhong Wheeler:Yanhong is an educationalist and child development expert who is ranked as one of the "10 most followed" parenting advisors on Sina Weibo (China'a equivalent of Twitter). She has been hailed as "the Dr. Spock of China" by the Wall Street Journal and is frequently quoted in the media as an expert on child development.

Yanhong has transformed approaches to parenting and education in China in numerous ways. Among other things, she is:

  • Author of 11 books on child development, education, storytelling, traveling with children and cooking. Her books have sold over 1.5 million copies in China.
  • Co-founder of the first Waldorf school in Beijing and the first international Waldorf Camp in China.
  • Creator of a pioneering parent training course called Art of Parenting that integrates intellectual learning with artistic activities. Yanhong now runs regular Art of Parenting sessions both online and offline.
  • The first native Chinese-speaking La Leche League Leader and the best-known advocate of breastfeeding in mainland China.
  • The first native Chinese-speaking expatriate Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) instructor and Teacher Effectiveness Training (T.E.T.) instructor in mainland China.

Yanhong graduated with a Masters of Education from Rutgers University and a Bachelor of Arts from Peking University. In addition, she has completed a three-year teacher training program in Waldorf primary and middle school pedagogy and a five-year International Postgraduate Medical Training (IPMT) conducted by the Goetheanum in Switzerland.

Amber Lin is a sophomore at Princeton University, pursuing a degree in civil and environmental engineering and architecture.

Her current research focus in on rammed earth architecture at Princetons Form Finding Lab, and she spent this past summer designing and constructing a spiraling rammed earth gazebo in Princeton'organic garden. She recently published an article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists titled "Natural Gas as a Transition Fuel: A bridge too far?", leads the student group Princeton University Energy Association, and works as an intern at the Princeton Office of Sustainability.

Outside of school, she is a competitive bridge player and represented the USA on the Girls Team at the 16th World Youth Bridge Championship in Italy this summer.

Jaron Ge Being a Chinese, one would think of me as an all honors student, getting straight As with a future career as a doctor or lawyer. That isnt me. As all my friends are studying for their next test, Im out in the fields baking in the sun, doing my job as a baseball umpire. I remember one day as I was walking to my designated field to fill in a spot for an absent umpire, I found out that my partner was a 70-year old federated professional umpire. As I approached him, he sort of gave me this look, as if he was wondering if I was the actual umpire. His face turned into a mixture of confusion and shock, looking as if he was saying that they just couldnt find anybody better to be his partner. He started off with giving me his expectations that if I was going to work with him, I would have to follow this rule and that. I suppose he thought I was new to the whole thing, because he never saw someone like me umpiring a baseball game. Eventually, after an hour into the game with awkward silence between us two during the breaks, he finally talked. The first words out of his mouth were You have a good eye. Everyone thought that kid was safe, but you saw the half second between his foot hitting the base and the ballGood call. That loosened me up a lot, as he asked What grade are you in? Im 15 and a sophomore. Yeah, you look young, how long youve been umping for? Around 3 years He told me about his son who enlisted in the Army after graduating from college. I told him that the college Im interested in was West Point. I guess this was an eye opener for him, as he let out a really long Ohh reaaaalllyyy? Being the skinny kid and Asian, West Point was the last college he would have guessed. Then a big smile appeared on his wrinkled face, You are different, you know? I wish you all the best! I smiled back to him: Yes, thank you! Im proud to be an atypical ABC (American Born Chinese), and I wish more and more ABCs will dare to be different and be themselves, so that the mainstream people wont stereotype us Asian Americans as nerds. We are Americans just like any others.

Jeffrey GU I do not believe in stereotype. Do what you enjoy and excel at what youre good at. I did not discover my passions at an early age like many modern Americans, but matured into them through a tedious system of trial and error. I am a current high school junior at Hopkins School in New Haven, Connecticut. Ive served two years as a grade-wide Representative and likewise as a staff member aboard the school newspaper, The Razor. In the 2015-2016 school year, I took a Leave of Absence from Hopkins in order to follow a passion in playing ice hockey. For eight months, I lodged with a Junior A hockey team in a small town in Ontario, Canada, away from family and friends. During that time, I lived in four different houses, had five different head coaches, trained five hours daily (four hours on-ice, one hour gym), participated in assorted community service, completed online school work, and played games on the weekends Im a stronger person for having experienced the world outside my bubble. I am authoring a book on my experiences and currently balancing a blog with my Hopkins workload. I will be participating in the annual Princeton Model Congress this year and am looking forward to playing an increasingly active role in politics.

Megan Pan I am currently a rising junior at the Pingry School, and my interests lie mostly in the humanities. Writing is one of my passions, and I have won several writing awards both in school-wide and national contests. Within my school community, I am an assistant editor of the school newspaper and captain of the Creative Writing Club. Having trained public speaking ever since childhood, I have competed both in the Poetry-Out-Loud recitation competition as a state finalist and in the William Paterson Poetry Contest, a multilingual poetry recitation contest, as the recipient of first place winner in the Native Chinese category. I am also very active in the schools drama program, and I have held a leadership position in the schools K-Pop dance club. Growing up as a person of Chinese heritage in America, I have always been interested in exploring different cultures. I enjoy traveling, and over the course of the past two years, I have toured cities in France on a school trip, studied Japanese as part of a homestay, and interned while living independently in China.

He is heavily involved with the Computer Science community on campus, having served as President of the Harvard Computer Society and HackHarvard, the annual intercollegiate hackathon at Harvard. Board games, music, and anime take up most of his spare time.

In college, I served as President of the Georgetown Scholarship Program, admissions committee reviewer for high school applicants, and NJ State Chair for Georgetowns admissions ambassador program.

咬着牙等孩子开窍
讲员:刘向群

11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

PCE之所以成为今天这样有组织有计划有规模的育儿组织,是因为志愿者的持续努力和默默付出,更是因为开路先锋的先知先觉和英明领导。TA们走在PCE前列,TA们的智慧和胸怀奠定了PCE的基调,格局和方向,决定了PCE的高度,深度和广度。

Sandra Liu就是这样一位开路先锋。她的大女儿Eileen Huang自去年去白宫领奖后被华人媒体相继采访报道并受邀登上的TEDxTalk讲台。熟悉Sandra的朋友都知道她忙于创业,没时间像大部分妈妈一样地无微不至。PCE广为流传的咬紧牙根,静等孩子开窍就是Sandra的名言。在PCE论坛和微信群里,你经常看到Sandra作为典型放手型羊妈的点滴分享和热情点拨。你可以感受到她的育儿方式,随意中带着精心,顺势间透着力导,放手之余是无处不在的引领。

她具体是怎么做的呢?她是如何找到适合孩子的学校和老师,开发培育合适树苗生长的土壤的呢?她是如何执着于自己成长,化为阳光雨露,及时地照耀滋润树苗的呢?她是如何放手干预日常育儿细节但坚持探求宏观人生方向的呢?她是如何深刻反思过去,勇敢重组自我,大胆尝试人生,并将其中的跌宕起伏和人生感悟适时地跟孩子分享的呢?她是如何反复地追寻探究自己的核心价值和处世态度,开启孩子心灵提升她们的生命力的呢?

这期月会,我们PCE另一位开路先锋Angela Chiu,Sandra的知己和邻居,将带领大家走近Sandra的生活。让我们一起聆听Sandra在育儿道路上有血有肉的摸吧滚打,体会她走过山穷水尽复见柳暗花明的酸甜苦辣,分享她痛并快乐着地跟孩子一起成长的真实故事。

讲员简介: 刘向群: 毕业于上海交大,在NJIT完成电子工程硕士后,进入电信业成为系统工程师。和先生黄新宇育有三个女儿,居住在Holmdel. 时间: 2016 9月17日星期六,傍晚 6:30点至9点

The PCE Club presents the 154th Monthly Event:

09/17/2016

Bite Your Teeth and Wait for the Blossom of Your Kids
Speaker: Sandra Liu

11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

Many of us are very proud of the profound and incomparable impact of PCE club in our community. With a superb scale (over 1000 members) and sound organization structure, PCE club is carried on the wings of many hardworking and devoted volunteers for the past 13 years. Its success is also seeded by the road blazers of PCE who demonstrated prophetic vision and wise leadership that have become a trademark of PCE and a banner of female leadership. Their wisdom anchors PCEs foundation; their vision projects PCEs future.

In many ways, parenting practice and reflection made us a much better/ wholer person. Sandra Liu is one such transformative leader and parent. Her oldest daughter Eileen Huang was awarded National Student Poet at White House in 2015. She was profiled by many Chinese media and was invited to give an opening speech at TEDx Navesink this April. For friends who know Sandra well, she is an entrepreneur working around the clock for her teams. If she is incapable of anything, it is giving herself completely to her kids daily activities. She created a less treaded path far from the tiger moms hymn. She created a moto that our PCEers are fond of reciting Bite Your Teeth and Wait for the Blossom of Your Kids. In our Forum and Wechat Groups, Sandra often shares her wimpy parenting stories where she is more willing to let go of a fierce claw for a furry embrace. We are often lifted up by her calm and powerful narrative, sparkled in with a delicious sense of humor. Her parenting style is so different. Its an increasing stream of love, flowing with inspiration and empowerment but completely open for the interference of a force thats calling our soul.

Then, what exactly did she do under her parenting hat as a real human being? You may wonder. Today, we have a special speaker, Angelia Chiu, a neighbor and the strongest ally of Sandra. Angelia will bring that portrait of the journey that Sandra took as a young mom eighteen years ago. Things like how she chose a special school and/or teachers for her kids; how she found out what type of soil is the right environment for her seeds who came without any label; how she managed to focus on her own growth so she can embody the sunshine and the rain drops which all seeds will need to generate their own nutrition; how she avoided losing sights battling over the details as a caregiver, instead aimed at winning the war over Lifes utmost rewards. How she dug deep into her soul and experience with a sharpened awareness and brave heart, and created a unique strategy for her own life. How she shared every turns and twists in her own faring journey with kids as the most important gifts. How she relentlessly dissected her own life for a set of core values and principles that open up the skyline of the young hearts and motivated their own yearning for a higher purpose.

This event will be a feast for us who love parenting stories that come with tear stains and even bloodsheds. Let us get lost, together with our over parenting anxiety, in the moments of Sandras confusion, exhaustion and the savory glaze of hope, recovery and victory. This is a major production of our PCE channel, celebrating a joyous yet piercing drama of Parenthood. A sitcom produced by PCE, starring Sandra Liu illustrated by Angela Chiu. Enjoy.

About the speaker: Sandra Liu, after graduated from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, obtained masters degree in Electronic Engineering from NJIT, later joined Telecom industry as a system engineer. A resident in Holmdel and raised three daughters with husband Mr. Xingyu Huang.

When: Sept. 17, 2016 Saturday, from 6:30pm to 9:00 pm

  • "Kids can learn from squabbling," says Katz, president of the National Association for the Education of Young Children. How to defend themselves, how to cope with anger." How to help our children become Cooperative, Caring, and Compassionate? How to inspire and nurture the children to stop the squabbling and cope with the problems and anger? Successful case study and personal experience and scenarios will be shared and discussed with the audience.
  • Combining with PCE EQ parenting theory, our speakers will state and share how and when to intervene in fights, provide suggestions on how to help children channel their hostility into creative outlets, and demonstrate how to treat children unequally and still be fair.
  • Qs & As. Discussion to the specific examples of sibling rivalry, practical and reliable solutions for sibling rivalry will be explored and welcomed from the audience. All in all, EQ parenting plays important roles during our parenting journey.

We sincerely expect our seminar will provide parents the practical methods they need to cope with conflict, encourage cooperation, reduce competition, and make it possible for children to experience the joys of their special relationship.

情商教育系列讲座(5)
情商与接纳完整的孩子
讲员:廖冰

新泽西华人福音会 11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

父母子女教育俱乐部将继续廖冰(Bonnie Liao)博士主持的情商教育系列讲座,情商教育有三个关键要素:

  • 建立良好的亲子关系
  • 孩子的内驱力
  • 接纳完整的孩子,不追求完美

情商教育系列讲座的第五期活动将进一步扩展情商教育的理念并将其延展到对孩子的认识与接纳。很多家长认同EQ Parenting的理念,但还是常怀焦虑,尤其是看到孩子跟别人家的孩子不一样。每个孩子都拥有不同的才智特性和个性, 如何才能有效地读懂自己的孩子,并帮助我们自己接纳孩子的全部,无条件地相信孩子会以自己的色彩影响这个世界?

继续前几次情商教育系列讲座,情商教育系列讲座的第五期活动将在三月和四月的活动中深度探讨第三个要素中的接纳孩子部分。第三个要素的不追求完美部分预计将在近期的活动中进行探讨,敬请关注。无论您是父母子女教育俱乐部的新朋还昰旧友,俱乐部都热烈欢迎您來参加本次活动。

讲员简介:

廖冰博士: 充满激情地推广情商教育十余年,她具有号召影响力,从东海岸到西海岸,已在全国做过70多个与情商教育有关的演讲或研讨会。2007年5月,创建非营利英华国际学校,全美最先融合中英双语的小学; 自2002年5月创建非营利英华语言学校以来,担任校长十多年并运用与推广《马立平中文》; 自2004年创建非营利英华在北京语言与领导能力暑期学院以来,每年亲自带领美国青少年在北京学习并为贫困学生服务;自2012年创建非营利英华普林斯顿语言与领导能力学院以来,带领来到美国的非英语母语青少年学习与实践并进行野外生存训练;自2004年,担任新州父母子女教育俱乐部总顾问,为华人父母提供一个学习和讨论的平台, 不断提高个人和子女情商,开发智商,增进和子女的交流。2000年罗格斯大学工商管理硕士;1991年休斯顿大学物理博士;1984年北京大学物理学士。2007年从美林证券公司辞职,致力于教授数学及创建非营利学校。目前,在美银美林工作。养育了正在读大学的一儿一女。

特邀嘉宾:

李林笛的母亲厉平老师会和大家分享Lindy的成长故事. 李林笛出生于中国四川,3岁随父母到英国,6岁移民美国出生于中国,毕业于普林斯顿大学的24岁华裔女孩李林笛(Lindy Li),义无反顾地辞去了摩根士丹利(Morgan Stanley)的理财经理一职,以自己的理想主义、奋斗精神投身到美国政治中。李林笛高中期间,就开始投入大量的时间在国会议员乔谢斯塔克(Joe Sestak)的办公室,帮助接听选民电话、处理文书。

在普林斯顿大学就读期间,她连续4年担任学生会主席,同时组织同学们参与了大量的社会公益活动,联合呼吁常青藤大学生一起,承担对国家和社会的责任和义务。她曾作为常青藤联盟中环保和气候变化的议题和行动的积极推动者和领导者,2014年被邀请随前副总统艾伯特戈尔去爱尔兰首都都柏林参加世界青年领袖关于气候变化和反饥饿、反贫穷的高峰会议。她是普林斯顿大学第一位担任学生会主席的亚裔女生、第一位连续4年在任的学生会主席。 在2012年的毕业典礼中,李林笛代表全体毕业生致词,并接受校长赠送的金钥匙以表彰其杰出的领导力。毕业以后立刻当选5年任期的校友会主席。今年5月29日,李林笛在母校校庆时接受学校校长颁发的特殊贡献奖。

今年6月,她通过个人网站www.lindyli.com,宣布参选宾州第7选区国会众议员的消息震惊华裔社团网络,同样包括全美政界。一个华裔孩子,没有任何从政经验,什么动力支持她放弃稳定的工作,参与到美国的政治中?她能成为我们华裔二代走入美国政坛的榜样. 现在的孩子,职业和志向选择可能会超出家长想象范围,李林笛的表现,对华裔子女的教育有很好的启发和鼓励作用,有助打破多少年以来社会对华裔的刻板印象。孩子不只是当律师、医生、码农,我们也有胸怀,有大家,有社会。

影视竞争无道 和 不可估量(Race to Nowhere 和Beyond Measure)观看与讨论

YingHua International School (inside Princeton Church of Christ),
33 River Road, Princeton, NJ08540

在2月20日,英华中文学校和父母子女教育俱乐部(PCE Club) 将联合举办教育纪录片竞争无道 和 不可估量观影活动,并由子女教育专家廖冰主持观后讨论。俱乐部鼓励青少年与父母一起参加本次活动。

影片竞争无道向人们展示了目前学校给孩子们带来的学习压力以及其带来的精神和身体上的伤害,使父母们不得不冷静下来想清楚所有的竞争是否真的能使孩子们到达他们想要或应该到达的地方?他们走的路真的将会给他们带来幸福和快乐,还是让他们走上了迷路甚至是绝路?作为父母,我们需要做的事是从盲目的竞争中走出来,做到教育有方,竞争有道。

影片 不可估量 挑战并要求我们重新思考教育的真正目的。如果我们的教育系统重视个人成长高于考试成绩、好奇求知探索高于模仿、激情高于排名?如果学校的最终的目的不是仅仅传输事实或公式,而是每个学生的转型?如果这种转变是从下往上由学生,家长,所有人来驱动?"不可估量 表示了全国公立学校教育改革的尝试。从肯塔基州农村到纽约市,许多学校正在进行着如何脱离过时的以考试为主的教育尝试,这种尝试给我们的教室带来了一个全新的视野。这些学校看批判性思维、交流、探索、实验、协作和创造力作为教育的重点。这种改革已取得显著成效。

时间: 2016年02月20日星期六,12:30pm- 4:30pm电影播放及讨论. 请准时。讲座期间有老师给儿童提供活动。

The PCE Club presents the 146th Monthly Event:

02/06/2016

Screening of the national documentary "Race to Nowhere" and Beyond Measure
Discussion Led by Dr. Bonnie Liao

YingHua International School (inside Princeton Church of Christ),
33 River Road, Princeton, NJ08540

About the Film

"Race to Nowhere" www.racetonowhere.com challenges current thinking about how we prepare our children for success. This remarkable new film shines a light on the price our kids pay for this race to nowhere. Cheating is commonplace, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and ironically, young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired. Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people who have been pushed to the brink and educators who are burned out and worried that students arent developing the skills needed for the global economy, race to nowhere points to the silent epidemic running rampant in our schools.

Beyond Measure www.beyondmeasurefilm.com challenges the assumptions of our current education story. Rather than ask why our students fail to measure up, this film asks us to reconsider the greater purpose of education. What if our education system valued personal growth over test scores? Put inquiry over mimicry? Encouraged passion over rankings? What if we decided that the higher aim of school was not the transmission of facts or formulas, but the transformation of every student? And what if this paradigm-shift was driven from the ground up? By students, parents, and educators? By all of us? Beyond Measure offers a positive picture of whats possible in American education when communities decide they are ready for change.

When: Feburary 20, 2016 Saturday, 12:30 ~ 4:30pm, Child care service will be provided during the seminar session.

Where: YingHua International School (inside Princeton Church of Christ), 33 River Road, Princeton, NJ08540

作为家长,大家都是望子成龙,望女成凤,希望孩子们长大后能够进可安邦治国平天下,退可修身齐家衣食无忧。而要做到这些,除了传统上所认知的IQ(智商)和EQ(情商),家长应从小关心培养子女的FQ - 财商。也就是说,除了督促孩子做功课学知识培养智商,学才艺,参加各种活动,培养情商,家长还需要尽早培养孩子们良好的财务习惯和决策能力,帮助孩子成年后做到经济独立,钱财无忧。

许多家长在自己成长过程中,对财商的养成并没有太多的教育和经验,基本是摸着石头过河。即使部分家长根据自己或朋友的经验来教育培养孩子,但总是有些忐忑,不知道教导得到底是否正确有效,是否把孩子推向正确的方向。 那么,有没有一个系统或者体系,能够在孩子的每一个年龄阶段明确地告诉家长, 应该怎样引导孩子,告诉他们哪些财商知识,怎么衡量和提高孩子的财商水平?

答案是,以前或许没有,但现在终于有了,那就是本书 《美国财商必备》。对于在财商教育中苦苦探索的家长,他们需要一个教育导航仪,在他们培养孩子高财商的路上提供每一步的方向和建议。对于在成长的道路上苦寻财商知识的孩子们来说,这本书就是一个领航员,告诉他们哪里有应该避免的急流险滩,哪里可能有丰富的宝藏。为他们长大后探索更为广阔的人生的海洋做好准备。

本书的作者俞心怡将与观众互动,结合自己二十多年的专业、社会和教育经验,向大家传授亲子财商教育。让孩子们在潜移默化的财商教育中,一点一滴地培养良好的财商习惯。希望他们长大后能够拥有高财商,能够理性地对待财富,智慧地增长财富,平和淡定地规划追求自己的人生目标。或许他们不会发大财,但也能做到量入为出,安身立命,自强自立。

此外,为庆祝春节的到来,在这次活动中我们还将举行家庭美食聚餐。希望与会者带来拿手的家庭好菜互相分享。让我们在羊年里喜气洋洋,度过一个美好快乐的子女教育年。

Financial Intelligence Development for Children
Chinese New Year Holiday Potluck Dinner
Host: Cindy Yu

Chinese Evangel Mission Church of New Jersey 11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

In a growingly complex economic environment, kids today need to develop financial intelligence more than everand the best way for them to do this is with the family. Ms. Yu and Dr. Zhang coauthored the books on Financial Intelligence for Parents and Children to address their concerns in financial literacy, and sound finan-cial judgement and behavior. While other books on financial education stick to the basics, Financial Intelligence for Parents and Children delves much deeper and wider by providing step-by-step instructions for engaging in age-appropriate discussions about money and finances with children at every grade level, from preschool through high school. It offers you the tools you need to talk about a wide range of money matters, beginning with the ABCs of financial education and progressively building to addressing more advanced concepts.

Topics covered include:

  • Banking and credit
  • Borrowing and spending
  • College and retirement
  • Gifting and estate
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Investing and wealth
  • Job and income
  • Risk and Insurance
  • Taxes and economics

It is vital that children fully understand these concepts before leaving the house and venturing out on their own. This must-have resource delivers a systematic approach to helping your children enter the vibrant world with the financial know-how. They will become productive and financially secure members of the society.

This event will be an interactive session. Ms. Yu will share her experience with her two teenager kids, a fresh-man in Princeton University and a sophomore in Edison JP Steven High. Participants all share their experience with their children with own stories.

Since the event week is close to Chinese New Year, we will have a potluck dinner during the event. Please bring your best dish to share, and lets have a great parenting year in 2016!

无压力育儿:如何养育成功的与适应力强的孩子

新泽西华人福音会 11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

全A的学生也并否更不容易出现抑郁或焦虑。同样,常春藤头衔拥有者也不能避免在以后生活中可能面临的不同形式的挑战,如失业,离婚,破产等其它生活中的变幻莫测。如果处理不利,这些个人挑战可能会导致某种形式的自我破坏如情绪化饮食,酗酒,吸毒或过度消费等。

因此,培养一个成功的孩子远远超过只是帮助他们取得好成绩和进入名牌大学。事实上,很多重要的生活技能都不是被教的或由我们学校的教学系统能够衡量的。例如,SAT成绩不能衡量一个孩子应对生活中的挑战和克服困难的能力。成绩不能衡量一个学生在压力中保持情感平衡的能力。一个人对优势和弱点,兴趣和厌恶的自我认识,不是在学校被教出来的,也不是进入哈佛或耶鲁大学的一个先决条件。然而,谁也不能否认,这些软技能是快乐和平衡的生活所必须的。

那我们作为父母能做些什么来帮助我们的孩子面对生活中的坎坷,克服不可避免的问题和困难,帮助我们的孩子不只是成为优秀的学生,而是成为被社会所需和贡献社会的公民呢?这是本月PCE活动的主题。

讲员简介:

Lisa Lieberman-Wang,Fine to FAB 的总裁和创始人

Lisa是排名第一的国际畅销书FINE to FAB的作者。 Lisa是一个具有开创性的专家和最前沿神经科学的创造者:神经关联术(NAP)。她创建的NAP能帮助人在很短的时间内疗伤,依据经过验证的模型,找到使人抑郁的原由,因而避免多年的治疗。她使用这种技术,基于已被验证的 七个秘密to FAB,帮助成千上万的人克服了长年的情感问题,包括抑郁,焦虑,紧张,自我破坏,情绪化进食,强迫购物,性虐待等。

Lisa没有从理论的角度来处理这个问题。相反,她的做法具有高度的个人化和实用性。20年前Lisa为了满足她自己生活中的需要开展了她的研究。尽管为取悦父母,她取得高成就,成为一个优秀的学生和大学奖学金得主,但她奋斗多年的感觉,却是永远不够好; 这导致了她多年的抑郁症,强迫性过食,暴食,贪食症,住院和自我破坏。她努力寻找答案,是我哪里错了? ,尽管大学毕业后花费超过50万美元做治疗和自救教育。但从来没有找到一个解决办法。后来她认识到不能再让情感上的痛苦和消极的思维使她消沉下去。她用七个秘密FAB找回了她内心的平静和力量,而得到近20年的心灵自由。现在,Lisa倾尽余生致力于帮助他人找到同样的自由。

Lisa被选为嘉宾专家,出现在数以百万人观看的ABC, FOX, CBS, Huffington Post LIVE, Dish Network 55, Direct TV 55, Comcast Cable of NJ 10, TWC 85和包括一些最流行的访谈节目,如CBS的The_TALK ,与Donna Drake 在WLYN 10 的Live It Up ,与Dr. Barrett 在 The Health of It上 ,NuvoTV 中的Curvy Girls,并在一些最负盛名的包括哈佛大学和在海军纪念馆的讲台上演讲。

Stress-Free Parenting: How to Raise Successful, Well-Adjusted Kids

Chinese Evangel Mission Church of New Jersey 11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

Straight "A" students are no less prone to depression or anxiety. Similarly, Ivy League degrees do not immunize the degree holders from different forms of challenges they may face later in life, such as layoffs, divorce, bankruptcy and other vagaries of life. If ineffectively dealt with, these personal challenges may result in forms of self-sabotage like emotional eating, alcoholism, drug abuse or excessive spending.

Therefore, raising successful children is about a lot more than simply helping them getting good grades and gaining acceptance into prestigious universities. In fact, many important life skills are not taught or measured by our schools academic curricula. For example, SAT scores do not measure a child''''''''''''''''s ability to deal with and overcome challenges and difficulties of life. Grades do not measure a student''''''''''''''''s ability maintain his or her emotional equilibrium during times of stress. Self-knowledge of one''''''''''''''''s strength and weaknesses, interests and dislikes, is not taught in schools, nor is it a prerequisite for entering Harvard or Yale. Yet, no one can deny that these "soft" skills are necessary for a happy, well-adjusted life.

What then can we as parents do to help our children to sidestep the "potholes" of life and overcome its inevitable problems and difficulties, to help our children become not just good students, but well-adjusted adults and productive citizens of our communities? This is the topics of this month''''''''''''''''s PCE event.

About the Speaker:

Lisa Lieberman-Wang CEO, Founder of FINE to FAB

Lisa is the author of the #1 Internationally bestselling book FINE to FAB. Lisa is a breakthrough expert and the creator of the cutting edge neuroscience: Neuro Associative Programming NAP. She created NAP to help you to be able to heal emotionally in a short period of time, avoiding years of therapy, with a proven model to breakthrough whatever is weighing you down. Using this technology she has helped thousands of people overcome lifelong emotional challenges including depression, anxiety, stress, self-sabotage, emotional eating, compulsive shopping, sexual abuse, with her proven "7 Secrets to FAB".

Lisa does not approach this topic from a theoretical perspective. Instead, her approach is highly personal and practical. Lisa developed her strategies 20 years ago in order to fill a need in her own life. Despite being an overachiever to please her parents, an honor student, and college scholarship recipient, she struggled for years feeling she was never good enough; this resulted in years with depression, compulsive overeating, binge-eating, bulimia, hospitalizations and self-sabotage. She looked for the answer to Whats wrong with me? never finding a solution despite spending over a half a million dollars on therapy and self-help education after college. She later realized that emotional pain and negative thinking did not have to hold her back any longer. She used the 7 Secrets of FAB to reclaim her inner peace and power, and has been free for the past 20 years. Now Lisa dedicates her own life to helping others to find that same freedom.

Lisa has been featured as an expert guest and seen by millions on ABC, FOX, CBS, Huffington Post LIVE, Dish Network 55, Direct TV 55, Comcast Cable of NJ 10, TWC 85 including some of the most popular talk shows, including The_TALK on CBS, Live It Up with Donna Drake on WLYN 10, The Health of It on with Dr. Barrett, Curvy Girls on NuvoTV and has spoken on some of most prestigious stages, including Harvard University and at the Navy Memorial.

When: January 09, 2016 Saturday, from 6:30 to 9 pm (6:30-7 pm: Childrens Talent Show; 7-9 pm: presentation. Childcare available, we have invited experienced arts teacher to lead the Kids Arts activity, cost is $5 per family)

父母子女俱乐部第十二届子女教育研讨暨年会

真正的成功:培育能在充满挑战的世界里健康向上的孩子

特邀演讲嘉宾: 宾大医学院儿科教授Kenneth Ginsburg

2015 年10 月3 日 星期六, 12:30 pm 5:30 pm

La Quinta, 60 Cottontail Ln, Somerset, NJ 08873

此次讲座将讨论如何激发和培养孩子对学习的热爱而不是对失败的惧怕,以促进他们取得卓越的成就。永远不要忘记,我们养育孩子的目标是让孩子成长为快乐而对社会有贡献的人。这意味着学业成绩尽管重要,它也只是衡量成功的标准之一。孩子需要具有情商和社交能力,才可能在家庭和工作中蓬勃发展。他们需要保持和发展他们的创造性和创新潜能,以及内在的韧性。孩子被推得太厉害,就无法发现自己的天赋,并趋于完美主义。完美主义者无法接纳自己,享受不到高成就带来的快乐,事实上这窒息了他们自己的创造性。Ginsburg教授将讨论大学录取过程,重点强调引导孩子找到适合自己的教育与学校。讲座的主题是培养能为世界做出独特与巨大贡献的成功孩子。

Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg简介:宾大医学院儿科教授Kenneth Ginsburg,专长于青少年行为和心理健康, Boys & Girls Clubs of America 的韧性专家,曾获多个奖项并出版多部专著,近期通过美国儿科学会出版了《Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Kids Roots and Wings》和《Raising Kids to Thrive: Balancing Love With Expectations and Protection With Trust》。他的临诊实践、教学、科研、以及社会活动都围绕着一个统一的主题:通过提高青少年的内在韧性来打造他们的强项。他致力于将研究和临诊中所获知的东西尽可能 转化为日常实践中的方法,以便让父母, 专业人士、和社区来培养孩子的韧性。

Fishbowl Forum participants(teenagers):

Christina Wang I am a junior in High Technology High School in Lincroft, NJ. As a sophomore, I finished AP Calculus BC and became an AP scholar. Right now, I am the Assistant Editor for New Observer Weekly. In addition to my academic interest in STEM programs/competitions, I have volunteered for Key Club, Monmouth Park System, and PCE for many years. In summer of 2014, I volunteered to serve orphans in Shandong, China by teaching and playing with the kids in a welfare institute. I actively participated in Track & Field, and have been a key member for Holmdel Varsity Volleyball team. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing piano, and drawing and painting.

Stephanie Shen Potentially being one of the youngest participants, I''m only a sophomore at Parsippany High School. I haven''t done anything super great yet, like getting into Harvard and graduating with a Ph.D in Biology. But I do have one major passion for photography. My work has been published in the April issue of Teen Ink Magazine, as well as being chosen for the cover of the September issue, and having being recognized in several other places, as well (currently trying to partner and collaborate with Weathered Signs and Brandy Signs). I''m the historian of my high school''s Key Club, where I get to extend my passion of photography to a club for servicing our community and world. Though a big lover of photography, I''m working hard to actually get into medical school to become either an eye doctor or anesthesiologist.

Annie Guo I''m a sophomore at Livingston high school. I may not have the best grades, but I''ve always enjoyed learning. I am especially passionate about English and Psychology. I find literature, as well as human behavior to be very interesting. Also, I love public speaking. Something about it has just always excited me. It''s even better to give impromptu speeches, because I like to go with the flow as I''m talking. Sometimes, I end up surprising even myself. Besides public speaking, I enjoy playing volleyball. The court is my second home and it''s where I can go to swing at balls as an outside hitter and forget about anything that''s stressing me out in real life.

Dennis Wang - I''m a sophomore at Livingston High School. I''m part of the LEO club in my school which is a volunteer club, and the Inner Circles club which is basically the Literary Magazine. I also enjoy playing the piano and writing.

Casey Tang - I am 16 years old and a senior at Mountain Lakes High School. I''m planning on pursuing a career in art.

2015 Annual Parenting Conference

Authentic Success: Raising Children and Adolescents Who are Prepared to Thrive in a Challenging World

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg

SATURDAY OCTOBER 3, 2015, 12:30 pm 5:30 pm

La Quinta, 60 Cottontail Ln, Somerset, NJ 08873

This talk discusses how to foster high achievement in children while instilling a love of learning, rather than a fear of failure. We must never forget that our goal in raising children is to prepare them to be happy and productive adults. This means that academic performance, while important, is only one measure of success. Children need the emotional and social intelligence to thrive in the home and workplace. They need to maintain and develop their creativity and innovative potential as well as their internal resilience. Children who are pushed too hard do not discover their gift and are driven to perfectionism. Perfectionists do not find themselves acceptable and dont experience the joy associated with high performance, and in fact stifle their own creativity. The college admissions process will be discussed and the importance of guiding each child to find the right educational match will be emphasized. This seminar is about raising successful children who will make their unique and substantial contributions to the world.

About Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg: Kenneth R. Ginsburg, MD, MS Ed, FAAP, is an award winning author and a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. Additionally, He serves as the external National Resilience Expert for The Boys and Girls Club of America and works with National Congress of American Indians in its efforts to build resilience in indigenous youths. His most recent books include, Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Kids Roots and Wings, and Raising Kids to Thrive: Balancing Love with Expectations and Protection with Trust, both published by The American Academy of Pediatrics. The theme that ties together his clinical practice, teaching, research and advocacy efforts is that of building on the strengths of teenagers by fostering their internal resilience. He strives to translate the best of what is known from research and practice into practical approaches that parents, professionals and communities can use to build resilience.

Fishbowl Forum participants(teenagers):

Christina Wang I am a junior in High Technology High School in Lincroft, NJ. As a sophomore, she finished AP Calculus BC and became an AP scholar. Right now, I am the Assistant Editor for New Observer Weekly. In addition to her academic achievements in STEM programs/competitions, she has volunteered for Key Club, Monmouth Park System, and PCE for many years. In summer of 2014, I volunteered to serve orphans in Shandong, China by teaching and playing with the kids in a welfare institute. I actively participated in Track & Field, and has been a key member for Holmdel Varsity Volleyball team. In my free time, I enjoys reading, playing piano, and drawing and painting.

Stephanie Shen Potentially being one of the youngest participants, I''m only a sophomore at Parsippany High School. I haven''t done anything super great yet, like getting into Harvard and graduating with a Ph.D in Biology. But I do have one major passion for photography. My work has been published in the April issue of Teen Ink Magazine, as well as being chosen for the cover of the September issue, and having being recognized in several other places, as well (currently trying to partner and collaborate with Weathered Signs and Brandy Signs). I''m the historian of my high school''s Key Club, where I get to extend my passion of photography to a club for servicing our community and world. Though a big lover of photography, I''m working hard to actually get into medical school to become either an eye doctor or anesthesiologist.

Annie Guo I''m a sophomore at Livingston high school. I may not have the best grades, but I''ve always enjoyed learning. I am especially passionate about English and Psychology. I find literature, as well as human behavior to be very interesting. Also, I love public speaking. Something about it has just always excited me. It''s even better to give impromptu speeches, because I like to go with the flow as I''m talking. Sometimes, I end up surprising even myself. Besides public speaking, I enjoy playing volleyball. The court is my second home and it''s where I can go to swing at balls as an outside hitter and forget about anything that''s stressing me out in real life.

Dennis Wang - I''m a sophomore at Livingston High School. I''m part of the LEO club in my school which is a volunteer club, and the Inner Circles club which is basically the Literary Magazine. I also enjoy playing the piano and writing.

Casey Tang - I am 16 years old and a senior at Mountain Lakes High School. I''m planning on pursuing a career in art.

Emily Wang - I am a senior at Randolph High School. I am Vice President/Captain of my debate team at school, which has helped me learn to advocate for what I believe in. In the Asian-American community, I have been a volunteer at Morris Chinese Academy for four years, am a member of an Asian-American parent-youth communication group and am co-president of my school''s Asian Culture Club. I believe that culture is very important to our identities and together, with my debate experience and active role in the Asian community, I wish to share that love with others.

Maxwell Tang - I''m a freshman at Millburn High School. I''m currently in no clubs or sports but I will do swimming and track. I haven''t found any clubs to join yet. I enjoy animating and writing.

5/9/2015

Emotional Health and Suicide Prevention in Teenagers

Chinese Evangel Mission Church of New Jersey
11 Lexington Ave., East Brunswick, NJ 08816

Many parents are becoming more aware of the ever increasing stress in teenagers lives. Recently, a Holmdel high school student committed suicide and the community was deeply saddened by it. How to be in tune to teenagers'' emotional ups and downs, and how to distinguish the alarming ones from the norm. PCE club contacted The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), a leading NGO in the fight against suicide, and invited their counselor Mr. Dave Thelen to speak to us. We also invited Dr. Jeri Quirk, an old friend of our club whose keynote speech at our 2007 PCE annual conference inspired many parents to strive to love our kids as they are unconditionally. Both experts will show us the emotional world of today''s teenagers and teach us the important aspects before it''s too late. We invite parents to join us and equip ourselves with the necessary knowledge so we can guide our kids with compassion through the adolescent years before they enter adulthood.

About the Speaker:
Mr Dave Thelen and his wife Jean lost their beloved nephew Michael to suicide after having him living under their care for 10 years. They decided to make a positive out of the loss of Michael. They ran an Survivors of Suicide (SOS) group to help others in need. Dave also joined the Central Jersey Board of AFSP and is very passionate in educating other kids and parents. They also founded Change A Life Uganda, an NGO Whos mission is to improve the lives of orphaned and disadvantaged children and their families in Migyera and Nabbingo, Uganda. They have worked in the USA and Uganda to give folks an opportunity to change their lives for the better. Below is an outline of his talk:

  • What do you know about suicide?
  • What have we learned with the new research?
  • Understanding Suicide
  • Preventing Suicide
  • Coping with the loss of a loved one.
  • Resources to learn more when ready.

Jeri Quirk, Ph.D. is both a psychotherapist and an educator who has spent her entire career working with children, teens and families. She maintains a positive, holistic and developmental or "growth" approach to all of her work. Jeri has co-founded two Sudbury schools including the Jersey Shore Free School in Little Silver, NJ. Jeris doctoral research and dissertation (Teacher: Heal Thyself) underscore her concerns about the detrimental processes of traditional schooling and traditional child rearing. Below is an abstract of her talk.

Based on 25+ years of doctoral and post-doctoral research with myriad and diverse groups of people, Dr. Quirk gently challenges us to re-examine our beliefs and practices with regard to our children. She offers proven and successful processes for self-esteem development, emotional and mental health, family peace, and success in life. Her talk will provide some practical, how-to methods for improving adult-child communication and relationships.

When: May 9, 2015, Saturday, from 6:30 to 9:00 pm (6:30-7pm: Childrens Talent Show; 7-9 pm: presentation, childcare available, with experienced art teacher to lead kids art activity, cost is $5 per family)

父母子女教育俱乐部热忱邀请您参加由我们熟悉和爱戴的廖冰博士所带领的讨论座谈会。这将是由廖冰博士主讲的情商系列讲座的第一期。家长们将有机会讨论子女教育中的实例和问题。情商(EQ)在每种人际关系中都是至关重要的,亲子关系也不例外。EQ的一个关键是共情能力。共情就是换位思考,站在他人的角度看问题。在亲子关系中,共情意味着,当家长与孩子互动时,我们应学会用孩子的眼光看世界,并尝试站在孩子的视角去理解他们。廖冰博士将带领我们讨论:

  • 情商与亲子关系。什么是情商?
  • 如何培养高情商的孩子?
  • 如何说孩子才会听,如何听孩子才会说。

PCE cordially invite your for an evening of a guided discussion led by our beloved speaker, Dr. Bonnie Liao. This is the first session of a workshop series led by Dr. Bonnie Liao. Parents will have a chance to discuss real life examples and issues. Emotional intelligence (EQ) is important in every relationship. Parent-child relationship is no exception. A key aspect of EQ is empathy. Empathy is the capacity to put yourself inside the shoes of another person and see the world through that person''s eyes. In the parent-child relationship, empathy implies that when parents interact with their children, we try to see the world through their eyes and try to understand their perspective. Dr. Liao will lead us to discuss:

  • What does EQ have to do with relationship? What is EQ?
  • How to raise an emotionally intelligent child?
  • How to talk so kids will listen and listen so kids will talk.

抚育孩子 提升自己

父母子女教育俱乐部热忱邀请您参加一场由邱岚博士分享自己抚育孩子并提升自己的经历。她主讲的内容包括:

为人父母是一个自我成熟和成长的旅程,如果我们敢于多学少教。当我们不固守父辈或我们自己的教育方式,我们便可以在更广阔的天地探索教育子女。一个快乐的人需要有自主的价值观,一个独立的孩子,生命要是在她自己的方向流动,她自然事有所成。她会从喜悦和爱出发来行事,而不是出于恐惧或需要外界的肯定。作为父母,我们需要调整自己的情绪反应,以使孩子免受我们过去的忧伤,未来的忧虑,或者别人的评价的影响。我们可以培育无定型的孩子,就像一个园丁浇水松土,但不会强行打开花朵,或选择形状或颜色。

在这次演讲中,邱岚博士将与大家分享自己12年作为母亲心路历程,她如何摆脱恐惧控制,转而用温柔的心去了解和感恩孩子们。

讲员简介:
Angela Lan Chiu immigrated to the U.S. with her family when she was eighteen. She received her Ph.D. degree in EECS from MIT. She is a principal inventive scientist at AT&T Labs and leads key architecture and designs. Dr. Chiu holds twenty-one U.S. patents.

Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves with Joy and Gratitude - by Angela Chiu

PEC cordially invite your for an evening of an exciting speech by our enthusiastic member Dr. Angela Chiu.

Parenthood is a journey of maturation and growth if we dare to learn more and teach less. When we have the courage to stop defending the way we are, or the way our parents raised us, we can open up the possibility that we are much greater and more magnificent and capable than we thought we were. A happy person needs to have autonomy and sense of value. An autonomous child, whose life flows in her direction, acts productively because she wants to. She acts out of joy and love, not out of fear or need to earn approval. As parents, we need to get our own emotional reactions and conditioning out of the way so our child can be who she is without being held back by our past, by our anxiety about the future, or by our concern about what others may say about us as parents. We can nurture without shaping, like a gardener who waters and flowers, but doesnt help them open nor choose their shapes or colors.

In this talk, I will share with you my 12-year journey of motherhood, how I shifted from my fear and desire to be in control, to an open and tender heart filled with gratitude and burning desire to understand my children and better myself.

Fishbowl Forum participants:

Alan Gou I am a sophomore Presidential Scholar (or senior) at Rutgers University, majoring in economics, computer science, and physics, with an interest in everything from high tech to the state of education in America. I was a PCE student reporter for two years and am thrilled to participate in this event.

Austin Jia - I''m a Junior at Millburn High School. I am the President of my Achieving-Better-Communications (ABC) Club, which I started two years ago. We started out by hosting discussions about controversial topics such as Affirmative Action, Social Media, and Peer Pressure, which were designed to engage parents and their children in conversation that they never had on their own. Later, I encouraged the parents to push their kids to take part in events outside of their comfort zone such as participating in the SCA5 panel discussion hosted at the local library and setting up video calls with "pen pals" from Harbin, China. Aside from running the club, I also enjoy tennis, violin, and debating.

Ellen Lou I am 18 years old. I recently graduated from Hillsborough High School in their class of 2014. I currently am taking a gap year and I have deferred from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. I am currently a professional ballet dancer with the American Repertory Ballet in Princeton, NJ.

Jennifer Q. Chen I grew up not too far from here, in East Brunswick, NJ. I graduated from the Huntsman program in International Studies and Business at the Univ. of Pennsylvania in 2008. After university, I worked for Lehman Brothers for a brief period of time before moving onto the world of ad technology. I currently work full-time as the Director of Global Trading at Sizmek and also works night-time and weekends on Givology.org. Givology is an online giving platform that connects donors to underprivileged students in developing countries. I started Givology in 2008 while a senior in college because I was inspired by the work of nonprofits in education and touched by the students I visited in rural Northwest China when I traveled there as a junior. There was a huge disconnect in education that my co-founder and I both felt needed to be addressed. I also firmly believe that giving back should be a part of everyone''s lives, no matter how busy and at what age.

Jess Fong I am currently a senior at Johns Hopkins University, majoring in International Studies and Economics, with a concentration on China. Last fall, I studied abroad in Beijing, at the Tsinghua School of Economics. I have always enjoyed writing and debating, and thus published three books while I was in high school. I also participated in Model UN throughout high school and am currently a Director at the Johns Hopkins Model UN Conference (JHUMUNC). In recent years, I took up teaching, mainly reading, writing and test prep. Last summer, I worked with a local learning center to develop a Model UN/debating program for younger children. Having gained so much from such programs in high school, I wanted to give younger students a platform so they are not shy to join these public speaking-related extracurricular activities later on.

Kevin Liu I am currently a student at Princeton University in the Operations Research and Financial Engineering department and graduated from Ridge High School. I enjoy playing clarinet, playing volleyball, and listening to rap music. On campus I am part of the business team for the Daily Princetonian, on the executive board of Princeton Social Innovation, a Chinese mentor for the Language Fellows Program, a member of the Princeton Sinfonia, and a member of the Princeton Asian American Students Association.

我们鼓励青少年与他们的父母一起参加本次研讨会, 这样更有助于父母和孩子共同的有效学习和提高。

2014 Annual Parenting Conference

Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore

SATRUDAY OCTOBER 18, 2014, 12:30 pm 5:00 pm

Crowne Plaza Hotel, 2055 Lincoln, Highway (RT 27), Edison, NJ 08817

For bright children, a focus on achievement too often eclipses other aspects of their development. Whether they are generally good students or routinely admonished that they could do better if only they tried, many of these children feel burdened by expectations, hindered by anxiety, socially isolated, or terrified of failure. The antidote is to help children cultivate a broad self-definition that encompasses more than their accomplishments. Drawing from research and clinical experience, this presentation offers practical strategies to help bright children cope with perfectionism, build connection with their peers, and find joy.

You will learn from her speech

  1. Understand how a narrow focus on achievement can inhibit childrens social and emotional development.
  2. Learn the signs that distinguish healthy striving from unhealthy perfectionism
  3. Learn strategies for helping children join in group play or conversations.
  4. Learn strategies for helping children savor positive experiences.

Eileen Kennedy-Moore, PhD, is a clinical psychologist with a private practice in Princeton, NJ, where she works with children, adults, and families. She is co-author of two books for parents, Smart Parenting for Smart Kids: Nurturing Your Childs True Potential (Jossey-Bass/Wiley) and The Unwritten Rules of Friendship: Simple Strategies to Help Your Child Make Friends (Little, Brown), and a book for mental health professionals, Expressing Emotion (Guilford Press). She is also the author of an award-winning children''s book, What About Me? 12 Ways to Get Your Parents'' Attention Without Hitting Your Sister (Parenting Press).

Dr. Kennedy-Moore has been a featured guest on many nationally syndicated radio shows, and she has been quoted in dozens of magazines and newspapers, including Parents, Real Simple, Working Mother, Family Circle, Woman''s Day, and The Chicago Tribune. She serves on the advisory board for Parents magazine and blogs about children''s friendships on PsychologyToday.com (www.psychologytoday.com/blog/Growing-Friendships). This fall, The Great Courses will be releasing a series of 12 videos featuring Dr. Kennedy-Moore entitled, Raising Emotionally and Socially Healthy Kids. Dr. Kennedy-Moore and her husband have four children. Her website is: www.EileenKennedyMoore.com.

深思和实践 一场意义深远的读书讨论

David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell

父母子女教育俱乐部热忱邀请您参加读书与实践的讨论。一本好书是可以帮助我们开启新的思维方式,开阔选择视野。廖冰博士将就此书的实践意义,结合多年教育经验,带领讨论如何帮助孩子选择学校和工作。不论是否读过此书,这场讨论都可以起到提炼精化,点明教育误区,促进对书中概念的消化吸收。

Here is a short excerpt from one of the many book reviews Innovation is one of Gladwells favorite topics, and the book makes you think differently about what it takes to be innovative. Our clich about innovation is that someone has to be able to think outside the box, but Gladwell spends much more time exploring how adversity can bring forth personalities capable of changing the world. Its not just the ability to think outside the box that matters one has to possess a personality capable of persevering through rejection, repudiation, and setbacks in order to make the world work differently. Such personalities are often hardened by setbacks encountered at a young age. -- KENT ANDERSON

Round Table Discussion: A Parenting Conversation about Success, Fitting In, and Honoring Who We Are

Lets put ourselves in our childrens shoes for a minute: What is it like growing up in America as children of Chinese immigrant parents? How do their ideas of success differ from those of ours? What hidden pressures do they face that we should be aware of? How can we help our children appreciate and take pride in our Chinese culture and heritage? How can we become more mindful and attentive parents by seeing our children for who they really are instead of whom we want them to become?

Please join Louise Kuo Habakus this Saturday evening for a lively and interactive discussion on these and other parenting issues.

专题讨论会 夫妻关系对子女教育的影响

父母是孩子人生中的第一位老师。父母对孩子的教育不仅体现在对孩子的直接教导上,也表现在父母的言行对孩子产生的潜移默化的影响。夫妻关系包括哪些的内容?夫妻关系对孩子的成长有哪些直接或间接的影响?夫妻之间的相处模式会对小孩子的社会行为模式产生影响? 什么样的夫妻关系最有利于孩子的成长?什么样的夫妻关系对孩子成长有害?如果夫妻关系融洽、彼此相爱,孩子成长过程中,孩子的心理和性格能产生怎样的正能量?如果夫妻之间经常发生冲突,孩子的心理和性格可能产生怎样的变化?您有没有遇到过这些问题?您和家人是怎样面对和处理这些冲突的?

俱乐部邀请了专家和家长来分享他们的经验,并和大家一起专题讨论夫妻关系对子女教育的影响。本次活动的目标是:

  1. 帮助家长了解夫妻之间的有效交流模式,以及这些有效的沟通方式对小孩的成长的影响
  2. 分享有促进夫妻之间改善关系的方法,并且更进一步地深入讨论这种改善对孩子教育的影响
  3. 讨论父母意识到夫妻之间相处模式的和谐与否对孩子性格形成的重要性,并且去了解孩子们的看法
  4. 交流父母该如何通过改善夫妻之间的关系来教会孩子如何正确地与人沟通

2014年4月12日

圆桌座谈会 如果能重来一次,我会如何教育我的孩子?

孩子的成长只有一次, 为人父母也只要一次机会。孩子在带给我们的快乐的同时, 也带给了无数的挑战。您会对孩子怎么还不开窍感到焦虑吗?您会对孩子的不听话感到束手无策吗?您在孩子教育的过程中有哪些疑问和困惑?您想听听其他家长在发现孩子天赋,兴趣, 因势利导方面的经验分享吗?您想与其他家长一起共同探索有效的沟通方式,建立良好的亲子关系的方法吗? 我们从其它家长所走过的弯路中有何借鉴?

应很多会员的要求, 在4月12日,俱乐部将举办以如果能重来一次,我会如何教育我的孩子?为主体的家长圆桌座谈会。我们邀请到几位有经验的家长来与大家分享他们养育孩子十几年来的经验与教训。他们各自有不同的人生经历,在教育孩子方面,也有迥异的方法和侧重点。希望您带着您的问题,想法,故事和经验教训,参与我们4月12日家长圆桌座谈会。

主要内容包括:

商乐维先生:怎么样把目标放远,不盲目跟随,细心观察,发现自己孩子的天赋,兴趣,特性,因势利导,因人施教,制定符合自己孩子的IEP(individual education program)。以补充学校标准化教育(standardlized education) 的不足,让孩子在自己所长,兴趣所在的领域有所突破,增强自信心。这样孩子会学得愉快,你也会事半功倍。

刘向群女士:在信心上培养耐心: 如果重来一回,我会要求自己耐心更耐心一点。耐心的等待孩子开窍的时机。 孩子们在文字,数学,体育,思维上开窍的时间有早有晚, 每个孩子都不一样。急不得, 比不得。在开窍前硬教,不但效果不好,还可能把孩子真正的内动力消减掉。 让孩子失去了嗨, 原来我挺行的 这种最可贵的信心 和因此举一反三的能力。而耐心的关键在于信任, 或者说信心。相信孩子会很优秀, 很努力,很关爱,很上进。Kids do well if they can". 天生我才必有用。如果我们想到的远一点, 长一点, 有坚定的信心和把握, 就容易有信心。

陆蓓女士:两个孩子已经是大学二年级学生,他们懂事, 积极, 努力和自信。回想起来我们做父母的对他们做人方面的要求, 学习上的督促,以及提供的宽松和谐的家庭环境起到了正面的作用。 我们希望他们首先要成为善良的人,尊重他人的人,然后努力学习,努力玩耍。

廖冰女士:我们的确需要挑战,并学会放手; 要让他们学会承担责任和后果,同时给予他们无条件的爱和道义上的支持;并以开明的态度给予真正的同情和理解而不是放任自流或牺牲个人诚信与人格。不要比赛!过一种平衡的生活,选择最适合于自己的大学比选择可去的最好的大学要好得多!

魏来女士:认为引导孩子存有感恩之心,是他们快乐的基石;养成孩子尊重他人的品质,远比学校成绩重要;教会孩子在不平衡中寻找平衡点。

时间: 2014年4月12日星期六,傍晚 6点30至9点(6:30-7:00 为小孩才艺表演时间,欢迎您的孩子表演他们的才艺,请预先注册、请准时。)

The PCE Club presents the 125th Monthly Event:

04/12/2014

Roundtable discussion: If your child could be young once again, what would you have done differently?

Each person only has one childhood, we only have one chance to be a parent. Children bring us joy, but also brought numerous challenges. Maybe you are worried or even anxious about why my kid is still not waking up; maybe you feel helpless when your kid is disobedient or even challenge your authority; maybe you have some questions or doubt about some of your parenting methods; maybe you are interested in learning how to nature your childs talent and interest?; maybe you want to explore effective ways to communicate with your child; maybe you would like to learn from other parents lessons learned.

To explore the answers, in April 12, the club will have a roundtable discussion with theme of "If your child could be young once again, what would you have done differently? We invited several experienced parents to share with us their over ten years of child-rearing experience and lessons learned. They each have different life experiences and background, and different parenting focus and approach. Bring your questions, thoughts, stories, lessons and participate in our April 12 roundtable discussion.

Main topics include:

Lewei Shang: How can we parent focus more on long term goal, never blindly copy others, in stead, watch carefully, discover our child''s talent and specialty, create an IEP ( individualized education plan) that leverages our child''s specialties. This way, family education can supplement standardized education at school. Let our children have breakthrough in the areas that they are passionate about, in turn, improve their self confidence. Kids can learn happily and we will feel achieving effortlessly. :

Sandra Liu: Be patient, seize the opportunity to coach kids to have the sense of ownership of their own achievement/breakthrough. Each kid develops in his/her own pace. It is never a good idea to push a kid in any aspect before he/she is ready in that particular area. Not only would it be ineffective, which in turn, would waste a lot of time/energy of the parents and drive the "emotional bank" low; but also, it could potentially harm the kid''s sense of mastery, and therefore lead to the lack of confidence to breakthrough in other areas of life. If we trust that every kid is designed to thrive, if we trust that "kids do well if they can", if we anchor our belief with some solid evidences, we would be able to stay patient and wait in quietness.

Bei Lu: Now my two sons are sophomores attending colleges. They are respecting, caring, hardworking and confident, seemly just as we wished for. Maybe the disciplines, the love, the communications played a role in their growth. As parents, we certainly hope so. Our next mission is to guide them to choose what they are passionate about so to live happily with full potential.

Bonnie Liao: we do need to "pick the battles" and learn to let go. Let them take up the responsibilities and deal with the consequences while providing unconditional love and moral support. Be open-minded and empathetic without being permissive or compromising personal integrity and character. Do not race! Have a balanced life as going to the RIGHT college is much better than going to the BEST college the kid could get in.

Weilai Fong: I am the founder of NOEC Learning Center, a Chinese language and culture school in central Jersey. I have two daughters, one of whom has attended college, the other one is graduating the high school. I believe that the art of raising children with an attitude of gratitude is one of the most important keys to their happiness. I believe that encouraging children to be respectful is more important than achieving good school grades. I also believe that achieving balance in an unbalanced world is doable.

2014年3月15日

发现和培养孩子的特殊才能

家长是孩子的第一个伯乐。如何帮助孩子发挥潜能,成为他们想要做的作家,画家,或者设计师?Jess Fong 集她多年和孩子教学和相处的经验, 将与我们分享她的经验。 她将用具体例子给我们讲述:

  1. 怎样让孩子富有激情地演说和辩论。
  2. 怎样鼓励和激发孩子的创意表达,并提高批判性思维能力。
  3. 怎样帮助你的孩子寻找带头的机会, 培养团队能力和管理能力。

Jess Fong简介:
Jess 是Johns Hopkins University 的大学三年级学生, 主修国际研究学和经济学。 主要经历有:

  • 在北京清华大学进行过国外短期学习。
  • 参加过7年的模拟联合国辩论赛: 4年高中模拟联合国辩论赛,模拟国会辩论赛 以及我们辩论赛;3年Johns Hopkins大学模拟联合国大会的委员会主席。
  • 曾在国会办公室做假期义工(intern)
  • 出过3本书 (都在高中时期)。

在第一百二十三期活动中,Jess Fong跟各位家长分享了她作为一个学生对孩子领导才能教育的看法。Jess是Johns Hopkins University 的三年级学生,在国会做过义工,在模拟联合国当了三年主席,在高中阶段就出了三本书,有着出类拔萃的领导才能与经历。作为一个典型的美国华人家庭的孩子,她与在座家长分享了自己对美国教育系统的着重点的理解,并对华人孩子和西方孩子的性格作了比较。在演讲中,Jess强调了领导才能在美国的重要性,并与家长分享了许多帮助孩子成为领导者的经验。她认为,领导才能需要通过不断的大胆实践与尝试,并伴随着一次次的失败才能培养起来。唯有多让孩子去主动思考,并接触实际社会问题,他们才能尽早变得成熟稳重,从而有能力去引领他人。

Jess说,华人孩子跟西方孩子在根本上并没有什么大的区别。在智商情商等方面都差不多。但是,因为两种截然不同的文化教育方式,华人孩子与西方孩子在后天的影响之下会变得非常不一样。西方人懂得去找到问题,但却不知道怎样去解决。与其相反,华人懂得去解决问题,却不知道如何去找到问题。所以说,通常在社会中西方人的孩子成为了领导者,而华人孩子只能当作追随者。美国家庭对领导才能的教育给美国孩子奠定了成为领导人的基础。领导能力是不能强行锻炼出来的。家长必须通过逐渐引导才能达到自己的目的。一种有效的方法便是经常向孩子提问题,通过问题来鼓励孩子思考。领导才能是通过不断地思考周围的世界才会培养起来的。家长可以不时地问孩子今天学校里怎么样?今天干了什么? 这种问题,并要求孩子做出诚恳的回答。孩子在回答问题的时候就会反思自己一天到底干了什么事情,从而增进孩子对自己生活的认知。而问题则会引出回答。通过不断地回答问题,孩子也学会了如何自己去找问题。

接下来的一个重点便是自信。Jess 分享了她自己如何找到自信的经历。当她只有十岁时,她被阿姨找去教高中学生的英文。当时,班上的每个学生都比她要大,于是便不服气,觉得她不能够担任老师这一责任。Jess 感到很害怕,但她妈妈鼓励她,说她已经有了资本去教英文。然后她就开始教五人小班,在课堂上跟学生相处得很融洽。通过这次经历,她便开始有了强烈的自信。家长不应该随便取笑孩子的无知,而应该尽可能地鼓励他们。从五年级以后,Jess就变了。她开始变得自信,能在陌生人面前大胆地发言。六年级便去了辩论俱乐部,八年级开始参加更多的辩论赛。高中又去了模拟联合国。这样不断地经历,累积经验,不断地磨练自己,不断地寻找问题与答案,Jess才能有今天的成就。

还有一个方法便是通过建立目标来培养领导能力。要是孩子有了目标,他就有动力去做,就必须去养成某种习惯。而今天的事情也必须要今天完成,从不拖拉。这样,孩子就开始掌控了他的生活,从而开始把握住他自己的未来人生。要是能成功地领导自己,那也能去领导别人。

在现实中,还有许多培养领导能力的机会,很多都在学校里。很多课外活动比如说模拟联合国,学科竞赛,科技比赛,运动,义工,中文学校,都有培养领导才能的机会。其他进入社会的活动比如说看孩子,教课,或去打零工也有同样的效果。有时候,移民家长反对孩子去早早地找工作,因为他们知道社会的艰辛。殊不知,唯有这艰辛的社会才能磨练出成熟的孩子。通过早早接触社会,孩子就会知道如何在高压之下与人相处。当孩子足够大了,家长就必须要让孩子承担起更大的责任,去承担一些真正有意义的责任。Jess在中文学校做义工时,她是义工主席,有时能与家长大人一起工作。从而,她也从与大人交流之中学到不少东西。家长应该鼓励孩子去做一些他们不敢做的事情,比如说去与陌生人独自打电话,去写正式的邮件,去独自面试找工作,去管理事情,去接受各种挑战。只有不断地做自己不喜欢的事情,孩子才会成长。

作为一个领导者必须要有追随者。而想要很多追随者则是先要变成一个好的追随者。在工作时,要做好自己的每一件份内事。学习上,要好好安排时间。然后还要让孩子多见见世面,去学习别的优秀领袖。总统竞选演讲也是一个很好的学习机会。当动力,经验和团队合作能力三方面要求都达到目标以后,就已经具备了成为一个领袖的准备工作。孩子要勇于尝试,不怕做错,也要准备好被提问。最重要的则是要坚持。

He is keen on public school education systems in America, and entered the race for the two open seats for the WWP school board in the Nov 5th election. While not being elected, he gained more valuable experiences and insights to the school district during the election campaign through his communications with the school board, the district administrators, and parents.

作为父母,我们都希望孩子有上进心,对世界充满好奇,怀揣梦想、目标坚定、百折不挠,希望他们有美好的将来。但在现实社会中,越来越多的孩子不仅对学校的教育没有兴趣,对很多现实生活的活动也提不起劲。他们终日沉迷于电脑游戏,深陷于虚拟世界,并因物质生活富裕、一切唾手可得变得愈加懒散、不求上进,作为父母,我们对此时常感到忧虑,感到痛苦,甚至绝望无助。父母子女俱乐部一直努力尝试着、探索着,希望能够在父母和孩子之间,筑起一座有效沟通的桥梁,培养孩子自律、自立、自强的精神,帮助孩子走上一条使生活更快乐更有意义的道路。什么方法能让孩子激发学习兴趣,愿意为通向未来的成功之路而不懈努力呢?

成功者皆有自身的秘诀。今年的年会,我们荣幸地邀请到著名作家、教育家珍妮沃克卡弗里(Janine Walker Caffrey)博士,卡弗里博士在教育如何激发孩子内在的潜能和动力方面有丰富经验,她将就如何培养孩子自律、自立、自强的精神的话题,做一场生动活泼、别开生面的主题演讲, 就大家关心的问题分享她的经验,相信她的演讲将给您带来多层次的思考,有意义的启示及新颖的技巧。如果您是一位关心孩子成长的父母,如果您迫切想培养孩子内在的向上驱动力,就请参加父母子女教育俱乐部于十月十二日 举办的第十次年会。

珍妮沃克卡弗里博士将和与会人员探讨如下课题:

  1. 探路型父母,直升机型父母的另一种选择
  2. 提高孩子自我锻炼意识、营造赏识激励氛围, 以建立自信心
  3. 降低生活舒适度、培养孩子自我管理能力,以建立适应性和独立性
  4. 延迟满足和降低奖励,以建立耐心和良好的工作态度
  5. 利用孩子朋友圈的正面影响,以建立主动性

珍妮沃克卡弗里女士简介:珍妮沃克卡弗里博士曾任职任教各种公校私校及政府教育部门,还创建了自己的艺术学校,现任新州学区学监。她致力于帮助父母学会如何寓教于乐,教子有方,出版发表了《9种激励孩子上进的方法》 (Drive: 9 Ways to Motivate Your Kids to Achieve)一书。

My name is Eileen Huang. I am 13-years old and I am currently in the eighth grade. Last year, I studied abroad in China for a semester. It was a very difficult yet interesting experience -- it was the best and worst thing that had ever happened to her. I feel like I have more life experience than my peers and I can now help them through their troubles. I''m looking for a high school that offers fun courses and can let me pursue what I love to do. I''m really interested in Humanities, especially Literature, because it provides more insight into human behavior which has always really intrigued me.

如何赏识性格内向的孩子

家长该怎样去赏识性格内向的孩子、帮助他们更好的成长?父母要怎样培养性格内向的孩子,最大限度地激发他们的潜能, 而不是去改变他们的性格?

如果家里有性格内向的孩子,作为父母, 您会为他们担心吗?随着年龄的增长,内向的孩子将如何处理他们的内心世界与现实生活的矛盾与互动?在一个竞争激烈的社会里,他们是否有足够强大的内在动力去支持他们实现自己的梦想?或许,一些孩子是否会选择逃避,躲在自己的安乐窝呢?

为了共同探讨上述疑惑,父母子女教育俱乐部竭诚邀请您和家人参加第一百十七期活动 如何赏识性格内向的孩子 圆桌讨论会。在这次讨论中,我们期望能为您找到部分问题的答案。更重要的是,您的参与也许能启发您在教育子女方面更多的灵感与创意。

本次圆桌讨论会将集中在以下几个方面:

  • 性格内向的优势(软优势)
  • 内向与自信
  • 对性格内向人的错觉
  • 如何扩大性格内向孩子的影响力
  • 性格内向的人如何交朋友和提高社交技巧

The Power of Introverts

How to cultivate introvert children to maximize their potentials instead of correcting their personality traits?

If you have introvert children at home, have you been worried about them? How will they manage to interact with the real world when they grow up? Will they have enough inner strength to pursue their dreams in such a competitive world? Or they will choose to withdraw and stay in their comfort zone?

The good news is we may have some answers for you, and more importantly we would like to invite you to participate in this round table discussion, where hopefully you will find useful ideas and insights that you can put into practice in your daily parenting.

Our round table discussion will be focused on the following key points:

  • The strengths of introverts ("SOFT power" )
  • Introvert vs. self-confidence
  • Introvert vs. perceptions
  • How to expand circle of influence
  • How does introvert make friends and socialize

A High School Graduate''s Perspective On Her Journey

High school is one of the toughest times in your child''s life. While still struggling to balance academics, athletics, and a social life, they also have the newly added pressures of college applications and the thought of their impending departure from home. For many parents, dealing with a teen in high school seems like a never-ending struggle - how can you seem supportive of their decisions while still making sure they are, indeed, making the right choices? How do you maintain a strong and meaningful relationship with your child, even with their inclinations to create their own lives away from you?

In this discussion, Shannon Zhang will speak about her experiences in high school and how her parents and she worked through their differences. Based on her own experiences, she will answer any questions parents may have regarding high school stress levels related to work, social life, etc, how students interact with each other in high school, and also questions regarding any other topics related to getting through high school.

In PCE Club 114th event, we will invite two seasoned Chinese teachers to share their unique experience of home schooling-- teaching Chinese at home. Their students achieve surprisingly high Chinese proficiency. Most importantly, they love Chinese learning.

About Shannon Zhang:

Shannon Zhang is a current senior at The Lawrenceville Prep School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. She will be attending RPI (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) for college and is planning to study architecture. She attended boarding school without her parents in both Beijing and Obninsk, Russia, as a child. Her mother is Bonnie Liao, an experienced educator and advisor of the PCE Club.

Have you even thought about the ultimate goal of kids learning Chinese?

If your kids are struggling with Chinese learning, what is the alternative solution? Can we turn Chinese learning into a fun activity? How do you prioritize the four basic skill of Chinese education: listen, speak, read and write?

In PCE Club 114th event, we will invite two seasoned Chinese teachers to share their unique experience of home schooling-- teaching Chinese at home. Their students achieve surprisingly high Chinese proficiency. Most importantly, they love Chinese learning.

Biography of the one speaker:

Ms. Hui Rebecca Wang graduated with a B.A. in mathematics and economics from Wellesley College in Wellesley, MA. Ms. Wang started her Chinese teaching career at a local Chinese school in 1998. Two years later, she started her own at-home language programs for heritage students. Many of her students have reached high level of reading and speaking proficiency level in just a few years. She is a New Jersey certified Chinese teacher and currently teaches at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School in Rumson, New Jersey. Base upon her teaching experience at Chinese school, public school as well as private group teaching, Ms. Wang will share with us some of her unique insight in the area of Chinese language education.

Another speaker will bring her daughter to participate. They will demo to us how to do it.

As President of Crescendo, he has led International Student Exchange Program (SEP) annually to give students opportunity to perform in Europe and Asia in joined recitals with students of local musical schools and colleges.

Dr. Babayev began his career as a concert pianist at age 5 when performed his very first compositions on the stage of State Conservatory of Russia. Educated in State Tchaikovsky Conservatory, La Sorbonne de Paris and Academy of Science of Russia, he was Laureate of the most comprehensive competitions in Russia, Poland, Austria and Germany.

The PCE Club presents the 111th Monthly Event:

Screening of the national documentary "Race to Nowhere" and Discussion Led by Dr. Bonnie Liao

About the Film

"Race to Nowhere" is a film that calls us to challenge current thinking about how we prepare our children for success. Named by TakePart.com as one of 10 Education Documentaries You Dont Want to Miss, Race to Nowhere brings communities together to spark dialogue and galvanize change in Americas schools.

Short Synopsis

A concerned mother turned filmmaker aims her camera at the culture of hollow achievement and pressure to perform that has invaded Americas schools. It is destroying our childrens love of learning and feeding an epidemic of unprepared, disengaged, and unhealthy students. This remarkable new film shines a light on the price our kids pay for this race to nowhere. Cheating is commonplace, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and ironically, young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people who have been pushed to the brink and educators who are burned out and worried that students arent developing the skills needed for the global economy, race to nowhere points to the silent epidemic running rampant in our schools.

~ www.racetonowhere.com

On February 23, the documentary Race to Nowhere will be showed, and Dr. Bonnie Liao, an experienced children''s educator, will lead the discussion after the screening. Dr. Bonnie Liao has been the principal & trustee of YingHua Language School, which she founded in 2002. YingHua is the first community-based school accredited by CSS at Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. In 2004, she designed and initiated the "YingHua in Beijing" Summer Language & Leadership Institute. Dr. Liao founded YingHua International School as one of the first Chinese-English dual language schools in the United States combining language immersion with an internationally-focused inquiry-based curriculum framework in 2007. Her latest accomplishment is the establishment of summer institute in the Lawrenceville School for students from non-English speaking countries in 2012.

More than 10 years of research and practice in education and being the parent of two high school seniors, Dr. Bonnie Liao has accumulated tremendous parenting experience and been frequently giving educational talks in PCE club. Her focus has been on developing and cultivating childrens emotional quotient (EQ) and communicating with children. Her speeches really open peoples eyes to think parenting principles and strategy from different angles. Hope you will be able to take this opportunity joining us for this educational parenting discussion.

When: Saturday, 2/23/2013 6:30 ~ 7pm, Registration, 7:00-9:30 PM, Film Viewing and Discussion.

Where:YingHua International School (inside Princeton Church of Christ), 33 River Road, Princeton, NJ08540

The PCE Club presents the 106th Monthly Event:

College Application How To Find the Right College For Your Child

The college search, application, and admission process requires a lot of work. It can also be difficult and confusing for your child. You, as parents, should play a "significant role" in the entire process. Your major roles are providing guidance and support. Your encouragement and assistance can make the experience much easier and less stressful. You can help by dismissing myths such as "the college you attend makes you for the rest of your life". No institution can do that. There is no such thing as only one perfect college for each college-bound student. You can help your child find the college that suits his or her individual needs.

Dominic and Elaine will share how parents can fulfill their "significant role": how to guide their child in college planning and develop the timeline of tasks during the high school years, what the key admission criteria are, what college is worth the "price", how to choose the "right" college, how to prepare for interviews, how to avoid common mistakes made by applicants and parents, most of all, how to enjoy and make the most of the college planning experience that strengthens family relationships!

Dominic and Elaine Kung
Dominic grew up in Hong Kong. He joined Dow Chemical after completing his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at Cornell University in 1985. Currently he is working for Borealis - an European chemical company. Elaine was born and raised in Hong Kong. She earned her college and graduate degrees from Cornell and Princeton in Electrical and Materials Science Engineering. She has been working at AT&T since 1985. AT&T sponsored her through graduate school at Princeton while she was working part time at Bell Labs. Prior to meeting each other at Cornell, both of them have also attended state universities in Delaware, Iowa and Maryland.

Outside of work, Dominic and Elaine have been active in serving at local churches in NJ since 1985, in teaching children and youth, coaching youths in serving at church and planning for college, sharing of parenting experiences. They have helped many young people and parents with college planning and applications over the years, both for their own children and extended families, and for friends and others in the community. Elaine is an active alumnus serving on the board and committees for Cornell and Princeton, including interviews with college applicants and hosting college fairs at local high schools. They have been happily married since 1986, blessed with two wonderful children: Grace (working as a financial analyst in NYC) and Christopher (working as an engineer in San Diego). They live in Basking Ridge, NJ.

When: 6:30-9:00 PM, Saturday, 9/15/2012

父母子女教育俱乐部将于2011年3月19日举办第八十八期活动,本次活动的主题是寻找自己独特的亲子教育原则和方式。我们都有这样的体会,看了一本子女教育的好书,或听了一场精彩的子女教育的讲座,觉得很有道理,很受启发.但当实际操作时,好像总有点不知如何下手的感觉;是应该象虎妈那样逼孩子呢,还是应该以激励和引导孩子为主;什么时候应该坚持原则不让步,什么时候应该尊重和考虑孩子的意愿,怎样掌握这个尺度。本次活动,将继续上个月怎样培养孩子的学习和求知兴趣及动力的讨论,黄敏将用她个人的一些经验和体会,与大家分享她的亲子教育原则,她是如何在尝试和摸索中,运用这些原则来帮助做出选择和决定的。只有符合你和孩子个性的亲子教育方式,才是最有效的方式,所以讨论会的后半部分将会由大家一起来讨论,如何寻找每个人独特的亲子教育原则和方式。每个做家长的都有自己的困惑,体会和经验,让我们共同来互相交流,磋商和取经。欢迎有兴趣的家长和青少年报名参加讨论会。

 Conference: CAP2010 - 多元智能=全能?

Conference

父母子女教育俱乐部第七届子女教育研讨会暨年会 on 10/09/2010

Opening remark + Keynote speech by Dr. Xiao Lei Wang and her presentation VGs

Duo Wei News report

多元 全能 天份挖掘孩子的潜能 《多维时报》和父母子女教育俱乐部共同举办第七届年会

多维记者 邹兴睿

语言、音乐、空间感、逻辑思维、社交能力等等都是多元智能的体现。主讲人王晓蕾的开场白让家长对孩子一下有了立体的认识。当过主管,创建过公司,做过老师,办过学校,也激流勇退回家当过家庭主妇四位专题讨论会的专家每一位都十分丰富的背景,让人不得不考虑他们在不同环境展示出的不同能力。

10月9日,《多维时报》和父母子女教育俱乐部共同举办了第七届专题子女教育研讨会。今年的主题为多元智能=全能?(Understanding Multiple Intelligences, Knowing Yourself),旨在为家长提供更好理解多元智能,了解你自己,了解孩子。这样的讨论平台,为到会家长提供了精彩的演讲,并和主讲人及各位专家展开了丰富的讨论。

主讲人王晓蕾(Xiao-lei Wang)1992年从芝加哥大学获得博士学位, 目前在Pace University 任教育学教授。王教授是一位跨学科的学者。她的研究领域很广,涵盖子女教育的文化模式,非语言交流对在家中多种语言习得和发展的影响。

她在演讲中提到,看起来淘气,无用的孩子,经过正确的引导和启发,一样可以成材。尤其是要学会从各个方面挖掘孩子的潜能,多元智能涵盖面其实非常广泛,在语言、音乐、逻辑思维等等方面之外还有更广阔的空间,要不断的鼓励孩子发现自己,并在日常生活中避免给孩子负面的影响以及应付的态度。另外,给孩子机会,让他们有更多的机会去接触不同的事物,有自己的判断才能不断成长,哪怕是错的,家长不能全部代劳。

本次专题讨论会上的几位专家,前AT&T的主管David Lu,创办私立学校的廖冰(Bonnie Liao),出版过多部畅销书的作家陈屹(Helen Chen),以及创办个人权利公司的 Loise Kuo Habakus,他们丰富的经历为家长们打开不同的眼界。主持人刘向群为他们各自的经历喝彩,并穿针引线的让他们分别介绍了在不同领域和经历中如何发掘出了各自的能力。

来自上海的David Lu在AT&T做了23年,主管过百余人,同时在音乐领域和教会,以及培养孩子上有很多体悟。Louise说自己是美国长大的华人第二代,从小父母和自己的要求就是要做个乖乖女,好学生,好妻子,好妈妈,从开始做母亲的那一天起,她就发现自己的工作角色完全改变。陈屹表示,从小父母就言传身教一切要靠你自己。作为1977届的大学生,又有着非常多的经历,她说那一届只是有着比常人更加执着更加坚持的精神,教育孩子中她也把这些融合其中。为华人熟悉的廖冰,先后任职美林证券,高中教师.等不同职业角色,她在教育上的激情从来没有间断过,创建了英华日校,并积极筹建中英双语私立学校。

本届会长吴建华(Dennis Wu)介绍了父母子女教育俱乐部,以及HASA,多维时报和甘肃万华实业集团等支持者。他表示PCE自成立以來每個月都堅持舉辦活動,提供各種講座,知識問答,戶外活動,提供切磋孩子才藝的舞臺,同時為各位家長建立非常好的咨詢交流平臺。 =============================================================

父母子女教育俱乐部第七届子女教育研讨会暨年会 REGISTER: click here

"多元智能=全能? Understanding Multiple Intelligences, Knowing Yourself" is the theme of the 7th annual Chinese American Parenting [CAP2010] conference.

Since 1983 when Dr. Howard Gardner, a Harvard professor of education developed the concept of multiple intelligences, there have been misconceptions about the concept as well as its application in parenting and in classrooms. How can this well-researched concept help parents to help their children achieving their potential?

We are fortunate to have Dr. Xiao-lei Wang (王晓蕾) as the keynote speaker. Dr. Wang received her doctoral degree from the University of Chicago in 1992. She is currently a full professor in the School of Education at Pace University. Dr. Wang was a regular speaker for Voice of America, local, national, and international parents associations on child and language development. In addition, she is a regular invited reviewer for several academic journals. Dr. Wang is an interdisciplinary scholar. Her research covers a wide range of topics such as cultural parenting styles, effects of nonverbal communication in teaching and learning, multilingual acquisition and development in the home environment, and moral development. Her recent books Growing up with Three Languages and Reading and Writing in the Multilingual Home (in press) focus on the challenges and strategies of raising children with heritage languages.

Following the keynote speech, Ms. Sandra Liu will moderate a panel discussion focusing on a wide range of practical parenting issues and questions related to this years theme.

The distinguished panelists are:

Dr. Bonnie Liao: Educator & entrepreneur, longtime adviser of the PCE Club.
Mr. David Lu: Executive Director of AT&T, founding member and leader of a community Christian church
Ms. Helen Chen: Global Marketing Strategic Planner and Consultant and an acclaimed columnist/author/public speaker. Awarded as one of the 60 most influential Chinese women by 163.com in the series Made in China in 2009.
Dr. Susan Chilvers: Founder & Educational Director of The New School in Holmdel, NJ since 1970

HAPPY MOTHER''S DAY!

PCE will conduct its 80th event featuring "EQ is Believing Yourself". In this club we have always been focusing on EQ development, and we are inviting parents to share their experience concerning this subject.

Betty Tuan is the mother of four, and she also worked in the IT area. Currently, Betty has been devoting her time in managing the NJCCC and Elite Preparatory Academy with her husband Jimmy Hwang.

I am honored to invite her coming to this PCE event to share her experience with us. Each of Betty''s four children have their own unique story to tell that Betty will explain to us. She was able to recognize the difference among the four and apply different methods to take care each of her children. Let''s find out how she did it and what we can learn from her methods and procedures.

We encourage both parents'' participation for the full benefit of the subject. PCE made a special arrangement to have a teacher to take care of younger children to do arts and crafts. At the last event, the teacher did a wonderful job and each child took home a couple of fun projects.

======================================================== How to effective communicate with teenagers:
Step 1 : Practice the basics of overall good communication : empathy, flexibility and open-mindedness.
Step 2 : Make yourself available and accessible.
Step 3 : Remain consistent in your answers and reasoning during decision making and disciplining.
Step 4 : Count to 10 before you speak, especially if you are agitated.
Step 5 : Give yourself 10 minutes to make a decision, even if you know what it will be. Your child will come to expect it and not blindside you with changes in plans.
Step 6 : Practice a controlled demeanor and calm tone, even when it''s difficult. Avoid being sarcastic or raising your voice.
Step 7 : Learn to apologize.
Step 8 : Have dinner together as a family, every night if possible. Family time generates good feelings among family members, which enhances the likelihood of successfully communicating.
Step 9 : Live the golden rule. [己所不欲勿施予人; ji suo bu yu wu shi yu ren]
