The community is invited to an evening of discussion about "strategies for raising healthy and motivated kids" this Friday, Sept. 28, at Stanford University.
The annual event, titled "The Knowledge to Navigate: Strategies for Raising Healthy and Motivated Kids," is sponsored by Challenge Success, a Stanford-based group that promotes strategies for raising resilient children without excessive focus on grades, test scores and performance.
This year's keynote speaker is author and educator Michael Riera, head of the Brentwood School, a K-12 independent school in Los Angeles and author of "Uncommon Sense for Parents with Teenagers" and "Staying Connected to Your Teenager."
Also speaking will be Challenge Success cofounders Denise Pope, a Stanford senior lecturer and author of "Doing School," and Marin County psychologist Madeline Levine, author of the New York Times best-seller "The Price of Privilege" and "Teach Your Children Well."
Attendees are asked to register at the Challenge Success website. A donation of $10 for individuals or $15 per family is suggested.
