About the Workshop


Tired of attempting to hide your imperfect parenting or imperfect children?  Join us for an evening with the authors of “Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid – A Survival Guide for Ordinary Parents of Special Children”.


On a “perfection-preoccupied planet,” sisters Gina and Patty dare to speak up about the frustrations, sadness, and stigmas they face as parents of children with disabilities (one with Asperger’s syndrome, the other with bipolar disorder).


About the Speaker


Gina (Terrasi) Gallagher and Patricia (Terrasi) Konjoian are sisters who share a love of wine, humor, and writing.  They are also among the growing number of parents raising children with disabilities.  Inspired by the success of their sisterly heroines, Mary Kate and Ashley, and fed up with listening to parents brag about their “perfect children” and never asking about theirs, the sisters decided to seek therapy by writing a book.  So in 2006, they self-published their first book, Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid!  The Movement of Imperfection, which explores the humorous, heartwarming side of raising an imperfect child in a world pre-occupied with perfection.
