AUSTIN, Texas—Parenting and child development experts T. Berry Brazelton and Joshua Sparrow will deliver a seminar on "Building Supports for Today’s Families" March 22 at The University of Texas at Austin.
The event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the George and Diana Sharpe Perinatal Lectureship in the School of Nursing. It will be held from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lone Star Room of the Frank C. Erwin Jr. Special Events Center, 1701 Red River St.
Brazelton and Sparrow are the authors of 40 books on pediatrics and child development, including the bestselling "Brazelton Way" series. The series includes advice on topics such as sleep, discipline, methods to calm a fussy baby, feeding, toilet training, sibling rivalry and ways to handle anger and aggression.
Brazelton’s television show, "What Every Baby Knows," ran for 12 years and won two Emmy Awards. In addition, his evaluation tool, known as the "Brazelton," is used worldwide. It assesses not only the physical and neurological responses of newborns but also their emotional well being and individual differences.
Although the lecture is free, reservations are being taken. Contact Margaret Hill at 512-471-9906 or e-mail at email@example.com by March 19.
