“Raising Sturdy Kids,” Great Conversation Series Lecture, October 20


“When you allow your children to struggle, you set them free.”

This is the message Keith McCurdy wants parents to hear. After three decades in the field of mental health, McCurdy has noticed that efforts to build self-esteem and minimize conflict are not increasing our kids’ happiness, but are actually decreasing their capacity for the joy that comes from developing resilience, maturity and perserverance. Sturdier kids, he says, become sturdier adults.

Please join us for this Great Conversation Series lecture with Keith McCurdy, followed by a dessert reception. The event is open to the public and is free of charge. No RSVP is required.
