Hear What People are saying about Green Beans!

L. Taubenfeld, LMHC, Therapist

I very much enjoyed it...Your style of writing is so inviting and inspires the reader to want to become engaged.  The anecdotes are wonderful and make the trials of parenting realistic.

A quality read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  This would be a helpful resource for any parent.

About the Author

Robert Newberry has built a professional legacy of excellence as an educator, counselor and therapist with multiple populations, settings and circumstances ranging from rural and urban upstate New York, to at-risk students in south Texas and teens of deployed National Guardsmen in New Hampshire.

In doing this, he has: 

  • Developed pioneering programming that helps young people from rural and urban areas achieve and excel in spite of personal loss, adversity, and challenges; 
  • Lectured for numerous regional, state and national professional conferences, and public and private organizations on various themes relating to helping young people become resilient achievers and pursuers of excellence; 
  • Authored numerous publications for parents and educators regarding raising and educating successful children. These include a subscription and web based bi-weekly column for educators and monthly column for parents which was the basis of the original Green Beans and Legacies. 

Robert Newberry claims, however, that his most important accomplishment is being married to his wife, Mary Jo for 44+ years. Together they have raised three great adult children who have enabled them to be grateful and enthusiastic grandparents of 10 tremendous grandchildren.
