The Westport PTA Council is sponsoring a talk this evening by a noted child psychiatrist about “hyper-parenting” and over-scheduled children.
Alvin Rosenfeld: PTA speaker tonight.
The presentation by Dr. Alvin Rosenfeld takes place at 7:30 p.m. in the Saugatuck Elementary School auditorium. It is free and open to the public.
Rosenfeld has taught at Harvard, Stanford and Columbia Universities and worked on the editorial board of the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
He is the author of five psychiatric and parenting books and has his own private practice. He has appeared on ABC’s “World News Tonight,” NBC’s “Today Show” and Oprah Winfrey’s syndicated television program, among others.
A news release said in his talks, Rosenfeld offers parents suggestions on how they can slow the frenetic pace of family life and explains how a “Family Night can be an antidote to the hyper-parent lifestyle.
More information on Rosenfeld and his work can be found on his Web site.

How disappointing. I would have attended, but I have to pick my son up from school, take him to karate, pick him up from there and drop him off at his tennis lesson. Run from there to get my daughter from her ballet class and take her to her voice lesson. Bring them both to their music lesson. Then its off to Peru to build homes.
