NPN's Parent University Speaker Series, generously presented by COUNTRY Financial , brings you pertinent information on parenting and lifestyle issues. Each event will not only provide interaction with a professional on the topic of the day, but also a chance to connect with and learn from other parents. Parent University is one of the many ways NPN facilitates interaction among our member parents while providing you with educational resources. If you have an idea for a future speaker/session, please contact us at email@example.com
An E-Ticket is required to attend all Parent University Speaker Series events - 1 adult per each E-ticket.

Are you frustrated with your child's behavior or just looking for some easy, doable methods to make parenting easier?? Does NPN have the event for you! We are thrilled to partner with Dr. Thomas Phelan, PhD who will teach you his world-renowned techniques.
This best-selling, award-winning program provides parents, teachers and anyone involved in child care with straight forward techniques for managing children ages 2-12 without arguing, yelling or spanking. Parents will learn how to control obnoxious behavior, the Six Kinds of Testing and Manipulation and how to handle them, and what to do about such issues as chores, practicing, homework, messy rooms, lying and so on. The presentation deals with the frequent and ordinary, but aggravating problems that children present. The seminar is intended for parents of average children as well as parents of children with special needs. If a family is in counseling, the 1-2-3 Magic program can be an important part of the therapy.
A registered clinical psychologist, Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D. has worked with children, adults, and families for over 30 years. He is a member of the American Psychological Association and the Illinois Psychological Association.
Dr. Phelan is the author of numerous books, DVDs, and audios including, 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 and More 1-2-3 Magic: Encouraging Good Behavior, Independence and Self-Esteem.
Light dinner, drinks and snacks will be served. Special thanks Country Financial for their continued support of NPN and our Parent University Programming and Dr. Phelan for his involvement! Thanks also to Eva Ho Photography.

Founded by four busy parents, UrbanSitter is an online resource where parents go to find & book babysitters recommended by people they know. Looking for the occasional sitter, full-time nanny, or last minute help? UrbanSitter will find available sitters—and show you the ones recommended by parents in your social circles (mother’s group, child's school, sports team, etc.). Search sitters by date & time, book jobs, and even pay online—it's quick, easy and efficient.
UrbanSitter is a community match service for parents and babysitters who connect online through Facebook and their existing networks. The site enables parents to search, book and review trusted sitters within minutes. Here’s how it works: Parents sign up for UrbanSitter using Facebook Connect and can view sitters known through friends or affiliations—including schools, sports teams and parents groups—and can view each sitter’s availability in order to select a sitter for a specific date and time, or plan an outing when they know their favorite sitter is available. Jobs or interviews can be booked in minutes and parents can contribute written reviews, ratings and Facebook “Likes” to sitter profiles.Go to website
