PEP Talk Thursday, Jan. 24: “Resilience & Self-Reliance”
Thursday, January 24, 2019 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
The Parents’ Association (PA) Parent Education Committee is offering another “PEP” talk, this time on the topic of “developing our children’s self-reliance and resilience so that they may become the masters of their own destiny.” D-E Lower, Middle, and Upper School parents/ guardians all are invited to join in on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM in Hulst House (located in Leggett Hall).
D-E Parent Paolo Bettelli will help to facilitate the conversation, which aims to discuss whether over-parenting may be hindering our children’s ability to rise up to challenges, embrace opportunities and develop their own sense of purpose and self.
In advance of this conversation parents are encouraged to check out resources provided by Ms. Bettelli (click here to view).
During this PEP talk, parents/guardians can expect to discuss strategies proposed by well-known authors on raising self-disciplined and resilient children, capable of meeting life’s challenges and of exercising their rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
