Webinar: Permission to Fail

Do you feel the pressure to be the perfect parent? This webinar is for you. We hosted Jessica Lahey, a middle school teacher turned best-selling author, to talk about giving yourself Permission to Fail.

About Our Speaker:

Jessica 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. Her first book, “The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed” was a New York Times bestseller and has empowered so many to strengthen home-school partnerships, support kids as they learn from their mistakes, and forge stronger, more trusting relationships with children. Her second book, “The Addiction Inoculation: Raising Healthy Kids in a Culture of Dependence” is the culmination of Lahey’s experience as an alcoholic with over six years of recovery, the parent of two kids, and twenty years in the classroom teaching English, Latin, and writing in every grade from six to twelve, and five years spent teaching in an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab for adolescents.
