We all have the best intentions when it comes to our children. But as much as we try to manage the academic and social stressors in today's media-saturated world, the pressure to get into competitive schools can be overwhelming.
We're producing a generation of kids who worry they may never be good enough. The recent college admissions scandal exposed this uncomfortable truth, signaling the necessity to examine our dignity, humanity, and morality.
Instead of snowplowing and helicoptering our kids through the process, can we help give them an enduring mindset and skills that will serve them through childhood to college and beyond? Join us for a soul-searching conversation about ways we can rewire our parenting to focus on what really matters when it comes to our kids.
