St. Joseph School was founded in 1888 by a group of like-minded parents who wanted the best for their children. While parenting has changed dramatically since then that sentiment remains the same. With that in mind, St. Joseph School has launched a lecture series designed to bring experts in their fields to parents to discuss relevant topics that affect today’s families. The lectures are free and open to the public.
On this page you will find information on our upcoming lecture, other topics for this school year as well as previous lectures. You can also find contact information for the PR Committee to discuss topics.
Our Upcoming Lecture
Positive Discipline: Monday, January 13, 7:00 pm
Harsh discipline has no place in parenting today. But what is available to teach our children the limits necessary to function in our society? Author, Keynote Speaker and Parenting Expert Bill Corbett will discuss 10 Tools for creating cooperative kids, or in other words, modernizing your discipline toolbox for today's child.
In his field of expertise of parenting, Bill Corbett is the author of the award-winning book, “Love, Limits & Lessons: A Parent’s Guide to Raising Cooperative Kids.” He is also the founder and president of Cooperative Kids, LLC, an international educational organization designed to help parents and professionals raise confident and cooperative kids who will one day find their purpose in life and on schedule. Bill helps parents and professionals examine what is in their “Discipline Toolboxes” and evaluate the fact that many of these tools are outdated and no longer work effectively. Raising children in today’s world requires a different approach to discipline and an admission that parents and teachers today need different tools. Bill works closely with parents and professionals to help rebuild the “Discipline Toolbox” and make room for more effective tools and methods that truly work in today’s challenging parenting environment.
