LAPEER — Dorothea Rogers, of Lapeer, was at The Book Shelf in downtown Lapeer Saturday (March 12) signing copies of Wisdom for Parents: Key Ideas from Parent Educators. The book, published by de Sitter Publications, is a compilation of essays written by parent educators for other parents. A total of 52 authors are featured in the book. Wisdom for Parents deals with a wide variety of parenting issues, from advice for first time parents expecting a child to methods on effective discipline and structure.

Rogers is a teacher at Spring Arbor University and Central Michigan University in Southfield. She has two essays published in Wisdom for Parents. The first essay deals with the necessity of empowering children, the importance of building children’s abilities and self-esteem at an early age and steps parents can take to do so.


Wisdom for Parents, available at The Book Shelf, features two essays on parenting by local author Dorothea Rogers.

The second essay Rogers wrote for the book gives advice to parents dealing with the “empty nest” feeling, often expressed by parents whose children have grown to adulthood and left the home. Rogers explains how parents can cope with the sudden loss and the changes that occur when the children all move out on their own.

People came into the store all morning and well into the afternoon to meet Rogers, purchase a signed book and discuss her essays. Among the people who attended the book signing, a few of Rogers’ graduate students were present to support her.

The Book Shelf is selling the book at the store in downtown Lapeer, both for parents who could find the essays helpful and to support the local author.
