Parenting the #Selfie Generation: Instilling Resilience: Survival of the Kindest: How Helping Other Fuels Success in Our Children…and Ourselves with Dr. Christopher Kukk
Location TBD (SRMS or Library).
New research in biology, neuroscience, and economics proves that to achieve durable success, we need to do more than “look out for #1” – we need to practice compassion. Join us as Christopher Kukk, Ph.D. – author of The Compassionate Achiever and founding Director of the Center for Compassion, Creativity & Innovation at Western CT State University – discusses how being kind not only improves the lives of others…it can transform our own lives and those of our children. Don’t miss this culmination of a town-wide read and preview of an upcoming Ridgefield initiative!
“Parenting the #Selfie Generation” is a community-wide collaboration with Ridgefield Public Schools, Ridgefield Council of PTAs, Ridgefield Library, Project Resilience, Ridgefield Youth Commission, Books on the Common, Town Vibe, and Silver Hill Hospital.
