(Grand Rapids, Mich. – November 21, 2022) Parents juggling the demands to be practically perfect are encouraged to register for a free webinar hosted by Fusion Education Group with New York Times best-selling author Jessica Lahey who will discuss how when parents give themselves the grace to the fail, their children and family also benefit.
“The path to resilience is more rewarding than the path of perfection,” said Lahey. “Giving ourselves the permission to fail is a monumental act. It’s ok to make mistakes and incredibly important to impress that lesson on our children.”
Lahey is a middle school teacher turned best-selling author of The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed and The Addiction Inoculation: Raising Healthy Kids in a Culture of Dependence. She will join Fusion Education Group for its monthly webinar. The webinar entitled “Permission to Fail” is free and open to all families, especially those with middle and high schoolers.

- Date: Tuesday, November 29, 2022

This will be a live interactive webinar, with a short intro and questions answered throughout the hour. Lahey speaks to parents, educators, school administrators, coaches, pastors, and community leaders about the science of learning, motivation, engagement, and substance abuse prevention, all in service to the belief that adults have the power to help kids become more autonomous, competent, connected, and fulfilled.
