Most Likely to Succeed? What it takes for teens to be happy while fulfilling their potential (and how parents can help!)
Wednesday, March 28 at 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the BBLC Lecture Hall. Join us for refreshments starting at 6:30 p.m.
We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Christine Carter, a highly sought-after speaker and fellow MA parent, back to the Parent Ed speaker series! Drawing on psychology, sociology and neuroscience, Dr. Carter will share practical tips for nurturing both achievement and happiness in teenagers today. Her presentation will cover:
- how technology and social media are undermining our kids' focus and what we can do to help
- how to increase our teens' tolerance for discomfort and disappointment so they can better rise to challenges
- how to focus on our teens' strengths rather than helping them compensate for weaknesses
- how to help teens combat feelings of entitlement, self-centeredness, and anxiety
