HARTSVILLE — National bestselling author, syndicated columnist and family psychologist John Rosemond will speak on parenting with love and leadership Sept. 13 at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Hartsville.
Known for his no-nonsense advice and relaxed style, Rosemond is among the United States’ busiest and most popular speakers. His Sept. 13 presentation is promoted as a humorous yet thought-provoking seminar where Rosemond describes the contemporary parenting conundrum in clear terms, then explains a practical solution using what children need adults to provide to them: Love and leadership.
“Parents and educators are noting increasing issues regarding behavior in children,” Emmanuel Baptist lead pastor Gary Colboch said in a statement. “We want to give parents the tools to raise well-rounded, obedient and respectful children. John Rosemond will share some of these tools.”
Using real-life anecdotes, Rosemond teaches parents how to motivate maximum child compliance, no matter the setting, through the proper use of what he calls “leadership speech.” When consequences are necessary, he teaches creative approaches to getting the job done.
Rosemond is the author of 18 books on parenting and family life, including his recently released “Grandma Was Right After All!” He has been writing a nationally syndicated parenting column for more than 35 years that appears in more than 200 newspapers.
Some of Rosemond’s books include “Because I Said So,” “A Family of Value” and “The Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children.”
Rosemond’s seminar is planned from 2-5:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 13 at the 949 N. Marquis Highway church. General-admission tickets are $15 per person or $20 per couple and are available by calling the church at 843-332-2271, visiting its website at www.ebconine.com or paying cash or check only at the door.
Free child care will be provided, but an RSVP is required. Doors open at 1 p.m. and Rosemond will be available for book-signings before the event.
