Upcoming Events

First, Middle, Last: How birth order plays out in a family and challenges your parenting style

9:30 a.m., Wednesday, March 25, 2015
McCulloch Intermediate School 5/6 Assembly Room

Dr. Kelly Jameson will help identify important patterns of birth order and how you can improve your parenting skills and help each child achieve success at home, school and with peers. In addition to first borns, middle borns and last borns, special segments will also include discussions of only children, sibling conflict and what combination of children is the most difficult.  Knowing the benefits and challenges of each birth order can give parents insight on why their children act so differently when then they are all being raised under the same roof!  This social science carries more weight than we give it credit for within our homes!

Kelly Jameson, PhD, maintains a private practice in Dallas where she works with pre-teens, adolescents, parents and young adults. She also serves as the Upper School Counselor at Parish Episcopal School where she works with 400 adolescents and their parents on any social or emotional issue that a teen might face! She regularly speaks to parent groups about topics such as stress, the adolescent brain, raising girls, raising boys, and resilience.  More information can be found at
