My masters' thesis was an analysis of a year of interactions among her then three young sons, and my doctoral thesis was a study of parents' beliefs and behavior in relation to sibling conflict.
I have been both participant and observer in family relationships as the third of a family of nine children. A big family - which now not only includes her four sons and seven grandchildren but also many in-laws and 24 nieces and nephews from both my husband's family of four brothers and my own has given me ample opportunity to watch and engage with ordinary families as they grow, struggle, and develop.
Although the pandemic limited the in-person events I was able to hold during my 2020 book tour, the silver lining of giving virtual talks is that they are here for you watch at your leisure. I have posted recordings of two events below.
"Bank Street Connects" Talk was held via Zoom on May 12, 2020 for an audience from the Bank Street School for Children in New York City.
In it I used concepts from my book to talk about parenthood during the pandemic, with a particular focus on resilience.
The final event of my book tour was held via Zoom for an audience gathered by the Chatham New York Public Library in Columbia County, New York on May 16, 2020. This is an mp4 file rather than a google link. but it should open up if you click on it.
Thanks to all those who attended one or more of my many events in 2019 and 2020.
