Title: The Gift of Failure
Please join Secondary Principal, Ted Fuller, for a discussion of the ideas in Jessica Lahey's groundbreaking book, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed. Here is an excerpt:
"Maybe it’s time to share some truths with her as I figure out where I went astray, and together we can help our kids rediscover their intellectual bravery, their enthusiasm for learning, and the resilience they need in order to grow into independent, competent adults. With a little luck, they will look back on their childhood and thank us; not just for our unwavering love, but for our willingness to put their long-term developmental and emotional needs before their short-term happiness. For our willingness to let their lives be just a little bit harder today, so they will know how to face hardship tomorrow."
