Do you often feel the need to swoop in and rescue your children? Do you view your child’s failure as your own?
Join Rachel Schwartz, LCSW, Director of Social Services at JCC Chicago, and Lisa Spewak, Director at the Jacob Duman Early Childhood Center, for a group discussion of the book The Gift of Failure by Jessica Lahey. Connect with other parents to discuss the unprecedented levels of overprotectiveness amongst parents and how it contributes to children’s inability to problem solve on their own. We look forward to having a meaningful dialogue about how to support our children in a way that aligns with our long-term parenting goals.
Nov 18-Dec 16
