On Friday, Oct. 19, at 3 p.m. in Cole Assembly Room, Catherine Sanderson, associate professor of psychology, discussed her groundbreaking new book for parents, teaching that following the quick-fix, “whatever works now” parenting solutions proposed by many other books may lead to a lack of independence and self-confidence in a child. The book offers helpful advice for dealing with everyday parenting situations, decreasing parent-child struggles and enhancing children’s physical and psychological well-being. Based on the principle that “slow and steady wins the race,” this is a manual for raising children in today’s world of immediate gratification.
