The Blessing of a B Minus:

How to Nurture Resilience and Optimism
 during Challenging Times  

 with

WENDY MOGEL, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist, Parenting Expert & Best-Selling Author

 

Why is a B- Minus a Blessing?

                                            

Raising children in a culture that puts more emphasis on school grades than life lessons can be challenging. Today’s teenagers are experiencing enormous pressure – from friends, parents, society, and even themselves. Often the smallest setback or disappointment can become magnified if our children feel unprepared to cope with them.

Join Dr. Wendy Mogel, clinical psychologist, parenting expert and best-selling author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee and her NEW book, The Blessing of a B Minus, for a seminar for parents, teachers and those who work with teens. Mogel encourages parents to look beyond the competitiveness of college applications and focus on the important big-picture of how to raise resilient, optimistic children.


The October 20th evening presentation is repeated on October 21st. Following each presentation, Dr. Mogel will sign copies of her books.
Special sessions will be offered after the October 21st presentation, and will focus on applying Dr. Mogel's teachings. Certificates of attendance will be given.
