The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed by Jessica Lahey
Modern parenting is often defined by an unprecedented level of overprotectiveness: parents who rush to school at the whim of a phone call to deliver forgotten assignments, who challenge teachers on report card disappointments, mastermind children’s friendships, and interfere on the playing field. As teacher and writer Jessica Lahey explains, even though these parents see themselves as being highly responsive to their children’s well being, they aren’t giving them the chance to experience failure or the opportunity to learn to solve their own problems, which is the key to growth and becoming the best person you can be.
Join us for a live Zoom session with nationally recognized author, teacher, and speaker, Jesica Lahey. Registrants will receive a copy of the book to read prior to the discussion. Please regsiter so that we can make sure that you receive a copy of the book. Arrangements will be made for pick-up. For parents of children ages 0-17.
This program has been fully funded through the generosity of the Voorheesville Community & School Foundation.
