Nurture Shock parent discussion

October 17, 2012

I want to thank the parents that were able to attend and participate in the book group discussion last Saturday morning. I appreciated the many positive comments on the Gould experience. As an educator and parent, I left thinking about the many stories and ideas that were shared. I know that the conversations concerning praise, the value of persistence, importance of education being a long term process, and the students’ being able to see through false praise will help me become a better parent and educator.

Thank you.

Here are some links that delve deeper into the ideas presented in Nurture Shock.
