Parent Education Series: How to Raise a Self-Driven Child

Join us after school on Tuesday, December 5th, for our second shared viewing this school year.

This time, we’ll tune in to join author and expert Ned Johnson “to learn why fostering a healthy sense of control is so important for children’s intrinsic motivation, success, mental health, and happiness. Parents and caregivers will learn how to pivot from manager to parent consultant, how to be a non-anxious presence and will leave with effective strategies to use with children ranging in age from tots to teens.”

Students may head to Fun Zone while parents and guardians meet in the Music Room to watch and discuss this presentation.

Please RSVP using this link. If you are unable to attend that afternoon, please still RSVP, and a link to the presentation will be emailed to you. We hope to see you there!
