Preparing Our Kids to Thrive in an Uncertain World

We all want our children to be successful, happy and healthy. But balancing increasingly high expectations like perfect grades, high test scores and getting into the right college with protecting children’s mental health can feel like a high wire act. So what can we do?

Join us for a conversation with parenting experts Madeline Levine, PhD, and Stephanie Lee, PsyD, who will share practical solutions on how parents can shift the focus from success at any cost to building the skills children need to thrive, like adaptability, resilience and tolerance for failure.

“What we want is for kids to start developing awareness of how others are feeling, and begin using it as a kind of guide for how to behave.”
