The Digiplex Theater is hosting an evening with Dr. Harvey Karp. The live one night event will be hosted by former Miss USA Ali Landry at 7:30 p.m. The topic of this workshop will be "The Happiest Baby and The Happiest Toddler". Moms and dads, parents of infants and toddlers - even grandparents, nurses and nannies - will want to visit their local Digiplex digital cinema to watch America's favorite pediatrician, Dr. Harvey Karp, reveal the surprising tips and tricks that have made his celebrated books and DVDs among the top parenting guides in history. Admission is $12.50.
Dr. Karp uses modern science and folk wisdom to help new families get the rest they need, and raise happy, patient, cooperative children. This live presentation will bring to life teachings from Dr. Karp's books, The Happiest Baby on the Block and The Happiest Toddler on the Block. Audiences will enjoy live demonstrations, watch footage of parents in action, learn simple solutions to help them raise happy, well-behaved young children - and get more sleep.
"Even loving parents can feel pushed to the limit by their baby's screams or by toddler explosions," said Dr. Karp. "But some simple steps give parents the tools to calm even colicky babies, soothe tantrums fast and boost cooperation in just days. You almost feel like you're 'flipping a switch.'"
Adds A. Dale "Bud" Mayo, Digiplex Destinations chairman/CEO, "This special event is a perfect complement to our Wednesday afternoon 'Mommy & Me' film screenings where parents and caregivers can come with young children and not worry about harsh looks if their children get fidgety - the lights are brighter, the sound is a bit lower during these special performances.
"We started this at the Digiplex Rialto Westfield and will expand 'Mommy & Me' to our other locations this fall," Mayo said.
