The Gift of Failure: Parent Workshop with Author, Jessica Lahey
September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Student Excellence Foundation is proud to co-sponsor this parent workshop with Community Unit School District 200 through a donation from BrightStar Care in Wheaton.
During the workshop, Jessica Lahey will address “overparenting” with the helpful authority of a seasoned teacher and the empathetic, often humorous, personal perspective of a mom who has truly been there. Children learn and develop best when they are given autonomy, allowed to feel competent and valued for the content of their character rather than the letters on their report card. She will also provide actionable recommendations to help parents (and the educators that work with them) reframe children’s temporary setbacks as beneficial steps toward lasting, longer-term success.
