Princeton Common Ground Lecture, 10/5: Dr. Wendy Mogel
Princeton Common Ground welcomes Dr. Wendy Mogel to Stuart Country Day School on Thursday, October 5 at 7:30 p.m. for a lecture titled "Blessings of a Skinned Knee." Drawing on insights from her thirty-five year career in clinical psychology, hilarious anecdotes (and sound advice) from school and camp counselors, and eye-opening conversations with middle and high school students, Dr. Mogel unravels the paradox of good-intentioned, devoted parenting gone astray. She explains how over-protection, over-scheduling, over-indulgence and perfectionism undermine children's intrinsic motivation, resilience, and pride in their achievements. Parents are freed to adopt a kinder, firmer, and ultimately more effective approach to the trenches of daily family life. Registration for this free lecture can be found here.
