Why values and coping skills matter more than grades, trophies, and "fat envelopes"

Please join the local parenting community for an evening with Dr. Madeline Levine, author of the New York Times best seller Teach Your Children Well.  

Madeline Levine, Ph.D. is a psychologist with close to 30 years of experience as a clinician, consultant, educator, and author. Her New York Times bestseller, The Price of Privilege, explores the reasons why teenagers from affluent families are experiencing epidemic rates of emotional problems. Her latest book, Teach Your Children Well, also a New York Times bestseller, tackles our current narrow definition of success – how it unnecessarily stresses academically talented kids and marginalizes many more whose talents and interests are less amenable to measurement. 

Dr. Levine is also a co-founder of Challenge Success, a project at Stanford’s Graduate School of Education. Challenge Success believes that our increasingly competitive world has led to tremendous anxiety about our 
children’s futures and has resulted in a high pressure, myopic focus on grades, test scores, and performance. This kind of pressure and narrow focus is not helping our kids become the resilient, capable, meaningful contributors that we need in the 21st century. Challenge Success provides families and schools with the practical research-based tools they need to raise healthy, motivated kids, capable of reaching their full potential.

I did read this book and found it very helpful. While no one method of teaching or one philosphy will fit every child Ms Levine gives you the basics for enabling your child and growing them to be successful and complete individuals.I review pertinent chapters when ever I need to and always seem to glean new indights into my grand daughter. Very helpful in this time of changing curriculums at schools. A great read for every teacher and parent.
