"Raising Successful, Self-Reliant, Less Stressed Kids"

 A Presentation by Dr. Michele Borba

Did you know that our children’s generation is found to be the smartest and most educated ever, but also the most stressed-out? It may be that we haven’t taught our kids resilience: those skills that help youth cope, handle defeat, bounce back from setback and learn to live independently. In this thought-provoking session, you’ll learn which skills really matter in raising productive, successful kids. You’ll hear simple ways to help kids and teens learn to manage time and stress as well as dozens of practical ideas to boost self-reliance, resilience and confidence. Best yet, you’ll learn what your own kids say they wish parents would do to help them succeed, based on a survey of Harbor Day students. Join Dr. Borba for an inspiring session that will teach you hands-on tools to help you parent for success.

Harbor Day School Moiso Activities Center
