Event description

Description

Are you concerned about “designing” the perfect college résumé for your children? According to Dr. Laura Kastner, doing so risks limiting our parenting focus to an over-emphasis on academic achievement, resulting in more stress and less sensitivity to other developmental issues which, in turn, can lead to our children’s underachievement and burnout.

In getting kids college ready, Dr. Kastner encourages parents to step back and consider that preparing a child to be successful in college is the same thing as providing that child with a healthy childhood. Backed by child and adolescent research, Dr. Kastner will discuss seven key goals for raising successful children and launching them to college. Focusing on these seven essentials will prepare children to not only get into college, but to thrive socially, emotionally, and academically before, during and after their college experience.

Audience: High school and middle school parents, caretakers, teachers, and other school staff
