Northern Illinois AGD Presents: Pediatric Dentistry – Dr. Marvin Berman at Giovanni’s, Rockford, IL

October 30, 2015

The Wonderful World of Children….
Marvin’s Garden of Tips
by Dr. Marvin Berman

Children today are not the children of yesterday. Parents are in a dilemma about child rearing and arrive in our offices in states of anxiety with kids who are wreaking havoc upon their parents, teachers, doctors and all authority figures. Permissiveness has become the guideline for parents. “No! Stop! Please and Thank you!” are becoming extinct. Instead we have “self-esteem”, “quality time” and “ time-out”. Add to the mix the increasing number of children with special needs.  Sharing his not-to-be-believed, live-action videotapes, Dr. Berman will vividly illustrate a multitude of tricks and techniques for turning even the most recalcitrant child into a cooperative one, without mind-altering drugs or papoose boards.  A don’t miss learning experience!
