Dr. Michele Borba , internationally renowned educator, award-winning author, and parenting expert will be the featured guest speaker at this community-wide event. All those helping to raise children ages 0-18 should attend! Parents, grandparents, educators and child advocates are welcomed.
Dr. Borba’s latest book is an urgently needed guide to address the staggering increase in anxiety, stress and emptiness in children from preschool to high school. She explains why the old markers of accomplishment (grades, test scores) are no longer reliable predictors of success in the 21st century. She offers 7 teachable traits that will safeguard our kids for the future. All those who register for the event will receive a link to register for Parent Workshops that will help parents put these ideas into practice.
