The Book Stall is delighted to promote this event presented by FAN, the Family Action Network. Respected clinician Madeline Levine, Ph.D., was one of the first to publish research about the deficits created by parents giving kids of privilege too much of the wrong things and not enough of the right things, in her ground-breaking 2006 book The Price of Privilege and again in Teach Your Children Well. In her recently released follow-up Ready or Not: Preparing Our Kids to Thrive in an Uncertain and Rapidly Changing World, Dr. Levine continues the discussion, showing how these same parenting practices, combined with a need to shelter children from discomfort and anxiety, are setting future generations up to fail spectacularly. She identifies the skills children need to succeed in a tumultuous future: adaptability, mental agility, curiosity, collaboration, tolerance for failure, resilience, and optimism.
Dr. Levine will give a 30-minute presentation followed by a short interview with FAN Executive Director Lonnie Stonitsch. Please upgrade to Zoom 5.0 to join this webinar.
BONUS EVENT: Those who purchase a copy of Ready or Not through The Book Stall will receive a link to a special post-event gathering with Dr. Levine following her presentation. You can buy the book here.
The New York Times bestselling author of The Price of Privilege and Teach Your Children Well explores how today’s parenting techniques and our myopic educational system are failing to prepare children for their certain-to-be-uncertain future—and how we can reverse course to ensure their lasting adaptability, resilience, health and happiness.
