“The Culture of Perfectionism” with Ana Homayoun, M.A.
Thursday, May 2, 2013, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
M-A Center for the Performing Arts (PAC)
Join us for a special presentation by Ana Homayoun on “The Culture of Perfectionism.” Ms. Homayoun is the founder of Green Ivy Educational Consulting and author of That Crumpled Paper was Due Last Week and the newly-released book, The Myth of the Perfect Girl: Helping our Daughters Find Authentic Success and Happiness in School and Life.
In her important new book, Ana Homayoun sheds light on the challenges facing our teens today in light of today’s ever-increasing mix of technology, socialization, and learning. In our achievement-based culture, many of our teens are doing remarkably well, excelling in honors classes and sports and attending top colleges in ever greater numbers—but beneath the surface, many are stressed out, overwhelmed and burnt out as they strive to achieve an unobtainable sense of “perfection.”
A sought-after educator, speaker, and coach, Homayoun offers fresh insights and essential advice for parents, educators, and students alike. Visit Ana’s website at www.anahomayoun.com.
