Parenting with Conviction

Family Service of Glencoe (FSG), North Shore Congregation Israel, St. Elisabeth’s Episcopal Church, and Glencoe Public Library are collaborating on a special series Parenting with Conviction: Insights from Our Books and Our Lives.

The second of two community conversations takes place on Tuesday, November 14 at 7:30pm at the Glencoe Public Library. The main topic, raising socially conscious children, is especially relevant in these challenging times.

This nondenominational dialogue will be facilitated by Reverend Daphne Cody (St. Elisabeth’s Episcopal Church), Rabbi Lisa Greene (North Shore Congregation Israel), and Kathy Livingston, LCSW (Family Service of Glencoe). They will explore developmentally appropriate, practical ideas for parents in an effort to help them raise socially responsible children.

“This event grew out of parents from all of our organizations questioning how they can integrate social consciousness into their daily lives,” said Kathy Livingston, LCSW, FSG Staff Therapist. “Just as with our spiritually aware event, parents have many questions, and are looking for discussion and exchange of ideas.”

This free discussion is open to the public. For more information, please contact Kathy at or 847-835-5111.
