Event description:

There is much discussion about how children being raised today lack grit and resilience. In this one-hour presentation, Doug Rosen will offer suggestions on how to raise a child who can handle conflict and can suffer disappointment without falling apart, self-medicating with drugs and alcohol, or engaging in self-harming behaviors. High school can be a time of tremendous anxiety as students struggle with social acceptance, tough competition, huge time demands, and academic pressure. Doug will discuss the importance of having open lines of communication and arming your children with the confidence to make good decisions and guiding them on how to live a life in balance.
