Event description

Description

For fans and readers of Daniel Siegel and Julie Lythcott-Haims comes doable day-to-day solutions on how to raise confident, prepared and enthusiastic kids from parenting expert Madeline Levine. Perhaps you know a young person who, despite giving it their all, is overwhelmed, exhausted and distressed. We want the best for kids, which is why we push them to excel, but as Dr. Levine has found, this pressure-based approach can be harmful rather than helpful.

You likely already know Dr. Levine and her groundbreaking book, The Price of Privilege, which portrayed kids who have every advantage but who struggle instead of thrive. Now, with Ready or Not, Levine focuses in on the resilience, optimism, and emotional skill set that offers young people the skill to weather any storm.

Levine offers a hopeful vision of how we can help young people embark on their futures with confidence. Using the latest developments in neuroscience and epigenetics as well as extensive research gleaned from entrepreneurs, military leaders, scientists, academics, and futurists, Levine identifies the skills that all people need to succeed in a tumultuous future: adaptability, mental agility, curiosity, collaboration, tolerance for failure, resilience, and optimism.

This program is produced in partnership with The Parent Education Series, Charlene Margot, Founder and CEO.
