on March 19 was a big hit with the PCDS community. The Head
of the Lower School, Barbara Heal, praised the program for the
way it dealt with basics and specifics. Her constituents are
the younger parents, and she said that you covered many of the
particular problems they face. Mrs. Heal also noted that she
enjoyed the humor in your approach. Headmaster Galen Brewster
spoke about the program with superlatives. He asked me to find
out when you plan to return in the fall, so that we might set
up a morning presentation for parents and an afternoon program
for the faculty.
I found the presentation very informative, enjoyable, and memorable.
I think you speak well to the generation of adults who were
raised by the children of the 60s, and who are looking
for advice on how to raise their own children in a world that
has changed a great deal since then. The changes, of course,
have a lot to do with the values and decisions of the older
generation, which includes you and me. Also relevant is that
in a young city like Phoenix, most of us live in nuclear families.
Our support systems grandparents, aunts and uncles, and
the friends we grew up with are in other parts of the
country. Its great to have an opportunity to hear from
someone, in person, who offers good counsel.
very favorable comments from the All Saints School parents,
too. This was our first joint venture in organizing
a presentation, so I made some fine new friends and really enjoyed
sharing the planning.
for your fine program. We will look forward to hearing from
you about your fall travel schedule.
