Love, Limits, Communication and Community in the 21st Century
Dr. Ron Taffel is one of the country’s few experts equally sought after by both parent and professional audiences. He has done over one thousand consultations and workshops in 25 states across the country.
Dr. Taffel is the author of five popular and two professional books translated into a half dozen languages. His works are hailed by such widely noted authorities as Mary Pipher, Alvin Poussaint, Michael Thompson, Rosalind Wiseman, Stephan Covey, Robert Brooks, Maria Shriver, Harriet Lerner, Michael Gurian, Ruth Peters and James Garbarino. His most recent book Childhood Unbound: Saving Our Kids’ Best Selves has been critically acclaimed for parents, educators, and mental health professionals alike as a guide to new approaches dealing with 21st century kids, families and schools.
In particular, Ron is known for his uniquely engaging ‘information and inspiration’ message on getting today’s children of all ages to listen to responsible adults, talk more about what really matters, develop genuine self-esteem and healthy passion in our coarse, technologically driven and pop culture world. Through his writing and public speaking Ron helps parents and child professionals move beyond outdated ideas to the cutting-edge of ‘what we now know,’ to draw on our natural strengths and hopes — to bring out the best in our kids and in ourselves.
