Based on her New York Times bestselling book by the same name, in this talk Levine tackles our current narrow definition of success—how it unnecessarily stresses academically talented kids and marginalizes many more whose talents and interests are less amenable to measurement. The development of skills needed to be successful in the 21st century—creativity, collaboration, innovation—are not easily developed in our competitive, fast-paced, high pressure world. Dr. Levine gives practical, research-based solutions to help parents return their families to healthier and saner versions of themselves by remembering that successful parenting is measured 20 or 30 years down the road, not at the end of any particular grading period.

Madeline Levine PhD a psychologist with close to 30 years of experience as a clinician, consultant, educator, and author. She is also a co-founder of Challenge Success, a project at Stanford’s Graduate School of Education that provides families and schools with the practical research-based tools they need to raise healthy, motivated kids, capable of reaching their full potential.

The event will be held in Fay School’s Harris Theater, located in the Harris Events Center. Parking will be available in Harlow Circle (23 Middle Road) and behind Brackett House (31 Main Street).
