Madeline Levine will explore how the culture of affluent communities pressures both kids and parents into a narrow view of success, undermining our children’s healthy development, sense of self worth, and identity, and leading to epidemic rates of depression, anxiety, and self destructive behavior. Backed by cutting edge research, Levine proposes solutions for schools and families that are both practical and credible, urging us to move away from a hyper competitive, myopic focus on grades, test scores, and performance to a longer-term vision of success that values our children’s unique interests, abilities, and well-being.
