One of the most important parts of the Cushman Family is our parent community, and it’s through each parent’s dedication to taking a hands-on and informed approach to his or her child’s learning experience that our entire community benefits. It is Cushman’s responsibility to offer a strong support system for and maintain a healthy dialogue with our families, so each year we offer a series of Parent workshops.

These workshops cover a variety of topics, and are opportunities for parents to learn more about Cushman’s programs and the strategies used for the delivery of curriculum. Parent Series sessions are also avenues in which the administration, faculty and staff share current research as it applies to education or information regarding our students’ health and safety. In addition, professionals from the community are often invited to present to our parents on a variety of parenting issues. 

Currently, Dr. Jeffrey Kanov is presenting a series of workshops called “The Secrets of Effective Parenting.”  A variety of topics are discussed from enabling vs. empowering children to dealing with children who disrespectfully talk back to adults.  He is available during these workshops to help support parents and answer their personal questions. Recently, Dr. Kanov sat down and answered some of our parents' most pressing questions for The Cushman School Annual Report of Giving. Check out the interview below.
