This session is for parents, specifically, to show parents how they can help their child get the most out of school. It’s grounded in robust research and cutting-edge science. It looks at the importance of high expectations, academic stretch and tenacity. It explores the necessity of failure to the learning process, and how to help children remove fear from that process. It also looks at the importance of praise, including its use and misuse, and along the way will give good quality strategies for helping children say no to distractions and temptations. In fact, it’s crammed to bursting with positive parenting tips, strategies and approaches. There’s a very good chance that parents will laugh out loud during this presentation, but there might also be a few tears … either way, they will hear what the science says about positive parenting and what they can do to help their child get the most out of school.
