About this blog
Cathy Cassani Adams is searching for greater meaning and higher
purpose. Her search has taken her down different paths, from the
aisles of the self-help section, to the workshops of gurus, to her
past experience as a child and family therapist at Children's
Memorial Hospital, to her current work as a certified Parent Coach
and yoga instructor. But her greatest lessons come from her
three beautiful daughters, ages 8, 6, and 3. Cathy is the
author of "The Self-Aware Parent: 19 Lessons for Growing
with Your Children.", she's an instructor in the Sociology
Department at Dominican
University, and she and her husband Todd host Zen Parenting Radio on
Pagatim.fm. Cathy lives
with her family in Elmhurst and she can be found at www.cathycassaniadams.com.
