Dr. Wendy Mogel is an internationally acclaimed psychologist, author, and public speaker. Publisher’s Weekly gave her—now classic—parenting book, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, a starred review, calling it “impassioned, lyrical and eminently practical…a real treasure.” Her revelatory second release, The Blessing of a B Minus, addresses the challenge of parenting adolescents in a culture of anxiety and entitlement. Publisher’s Weekly raved, “Mogel’s compassion and authenticity will ring true with parents of all faiths facing the tumultuous teen years.” A revised and edition of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, updated for the age of social media and smartphones, was released on July 7, 2017.
Mogel’s third book, due out in 2018, is about cultivating the art of conversation—from infancy to adulthood—in an age of hurry, worry, and digital distraction. The working title is Voice Lessons.
Dr. Mogel is known for her enlightening, frank, and deft approach to “parenting” parents by supporting and guiding them in raising their children and coaching them into becoming mature stakeholders in our schools.
