Alice Kaltman, one of our Experts in parent coaching, is doing her classic talk on “promoting self-esteem” this Saturday.  I can’t tell you how many times I have referred to her advice on everything from sibling rivalry to how to fight fair with your partner in some of my most difficult parenting moments…like, um today.

We all want kids who feel good about themselves but is there such a thing as too much praise? How does constructive criticism affect your child’s sense of self? What’s the right age for what? Find out by joining Alice at her talk in DUMBO.
