Smart Parenting for Smart Kids

Join us on April 27, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. for Smart Parenting for Smart Kids with Eileen Kennedy-Moore

It takes more than school smarts to build a fulfilling life. Our culture's relentless focus on "being impressive" places a huge burden on children that can eclipse other aspects of their development and leave them feeling anxious, disconnected, irritable or filled with self-doubt. The antidote is to create a broad self-definition that encompasses not only children's abilities but also their humanity and inner strengths. Drawing from research and clinical experience, this program offers parents doable strategies to help children learn to temper perfectionism, build relationships and find joy.
