The Gift of Failure: Fostering Resilience in Kids with Jessica Lahey
February 12, 2020 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Modern parenting is defined by an unprecedented level of overprotectiveness and drive to navigate everything in our children’s lives. In an effort to be highly responsive to our children’s well-being, we as parents aren’t giving them the chance to experience failure — or the opportunity to learn to solve their own problems. With targeted advice and strategies, Jessica will help parents develop a plan for “stepping back” so that children can grow up to be successful, resilient, and self-reliant adults.
