Pacific Collegiate School
Parent Educator Vicki Hoefle Speaks to Santa Cruz Parents
Date: 03/07/2019 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Ages: Adults with children Admission Fees: Free

Five key obstacles that most parents face in their journey toward raising responsible, resilient children. Learn strategies that can "clear away the clutter" and create clarity.


Duct Tape Parenting: A Less is More Approach to Raising Respectful, Responsible and Resilient Kids

Understand the five key obstacles that most parents face in their journey toward raising responsible, resilient children.

Learn to reinforce strategies that can "clear away the clutter" and create clarity that will guide your family for years.

 

Speaker Vicki Hoefle

A no-nonsense parent coach and educator, mother of six and author of Duct Tape Parenting, Vicki Hoefle challenges us to let our kids learn from their own mistakes - even if it takes a powerful adhesive to keep our mouths shut and hands firmly in our laps. She offers a new perspective on what it means to be an effective, engaged parent and how giving our children space to solve their own problems is key to self-regulation and self-confidence. Hoefle will also help us navigate the tricky terrain of co-parenting and provide resources and tools to help guide us towards collaborative decision making.

Georgiana Bruce Kirby Preparatory School
How do students know if Kirby is a good fit? A shadow day is an ideal way to find out
Date: Every Mon (Oct 29-Apr 29)
Ages: Family Admission Fees: FREE

Shadow Day

A shadow day is an excellent way to experience a day at Kirby and to see if our school is a good fit for your student. We will pair your student with a host who has similar interests. They will spend the day together, attending classes, hanging out with other Kirby students, and enjoying lunch with friends in the renowned Kirby Café.

 

How it works:

  • Monday is our preferred shadow day because of our block schedule. However, a shadow day can be scheduled for any day of the week.
  • Student shadows are treated to a hot lunch made fresh in our kitchen by our executive chef, Tracy Landry.
  • Schedule your shadow day through the Admissions Office. Call (831) 423-0658 ×202, email admissions@kirby.org, or use the Contact Us link below.
