Author to discuss parenting strategies at chocolate shop

MIDDLEBURY — Back-to-school time is the perfect time to retool family and home routines. The Vermont Book Shop in Middlebury brings parenting expert Vicki Hoefle to Middlebury Chocolates on Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 7 p.m. to help parents get their kids, and their home life, in order. She shows parents how to trust their intuition and develop an intentional strategy for meeting each child’s unique needs.
Hoefle, a Middlebury resident, professional parent educator and author of “Duct Tape Parenting,” will present and discuss her new book, “The Straight Talk on Parenting: A No-Nonsense Approach on How to Grow a Grown-Up.” In this new parenting guide, parents are instructed to get off the path to perfection and get back to the real job of parenting: to grow a grown-up.
Hoefle draws upon 25 years of experience with helping parents see the big picture and sidestep what she calls the “detail drama” that too often trumps everyday life with kids. She will address common issues parents face (and often dread!) and discuss her methodology that focuses on parents helping their children build a strong foundation for their own success.
This event is free. Middlebury Chocolates is at 7 Frog Hollow Alley. Chocolate, coffee and books will be available for purchase. RSVPs to the Vermont Book Shop, at 388-2061, are requested.
