Southridge School Community Speaker Event
Jessica Lahey: The Gift of Failure
On Thursday, April 15th, from 7:00 - 8:30 pm, we will be hosting Jessica Lahey to speak on her New York Times best selling book, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed. This event will be hosted virtually (on Zoom) and is open to the community - everyone is welcome!
This groundbreaking book focuses on the critical school years when parents must learn to allow their children to experience the disappointment and frustrations that occur from life’s inevitable problems so that they can grow up to be successful, resilient, and self-reliant adults. Jessica speaks about the science of learning, motivation, and engagement, all in service to the belief that adults have the power to help kids become more autonomous, competent, connected, and fulfilled. Her first book, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed was a New York Times best seller and has empowered so many to strengthen home-school partnerships, support kids as they learn from their mistakes, and forge stronger, more trusting relationships with children.
Registration is now closed. The Zoom link for those registered will be emailed to the week of the presentation.
We look forward to you joining us!
