Event description

Description

What's the best way to motivate students to own their education and develop resilience? Jessica Lahey will explain that the key is motivation that comes from within. She will summarize the current research on autonomy-supportive parenting and offer practical advice for fostering intrinsic motivation. Jessica is the author of the New York Times bestselling book "The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed." She is an English and writing teacher, correspondent for the Atlantic, commentator for Vermont Public Radio, and writes the "Parent-Teacher Conference" column for the New York Times. Come learn how to wean your kids off of bribes and coercion and give them instead the support and encouragement they need to succeed.
