"How to Raise Resilient, Gritty, and Passionate People"
Wed, March 22, 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Mill Valley Middle School Gym, 425 Sycamore Avenue
From grade school to the years beyond college, life is a series of transitions for children and parents alike. Today’s parents hear more, know more, and are more involved. Technology has made it easier than ever for parents to solve, fix, and manage problems. As a result, many students leave high school without the grit, resilience, and ability to navigate the challenges awaiting them in college and life beyond. Parents are faced with new questions: Can fixing what’s broken today make it harder for my child to fix what’s broken tomorrow? Am I preparing my child to handle the social, emotional, physical, financial, and academic transition that is part of life in college, and beyond? How can I give my child room to struggle, fail, and feel uncomfortable and still be a good parent? These are some of the questions 5 Simple Rules For Parents answers. New York Times bestselling author Harlan Cohen gives parents a framework to help, guide, and support their children through middle school, high school, and the years beyond. Harlan’s Five Simple Rules are based on personal interviews, group discussions, and visits to over 400 high school and college campuses. He delivers actionable tools and advice parents can immediately apply. Please click https://www.eventbrite.com/e/how-to-raise-resilient-gritty-and-passionate-people-tickets-30493503891 to register.
