Tuesday Interview: Madeline Levine on Teaching Your Children Well

Join me Tuesday, April 9th, for a live and interactive FutureofEducation.com conversation with Madeline Levine on her book, Teach Your Children Well: Parenting for Authentic Success.

Dr. Levine is a psychologist with over twenty-five years of experience as a clinician, consultant and educator. Teach Your Children Well, a New York Times bestseller, looks at "how parents and schools have come to embrace a narrow vision of success that is out of line with the real needs of children and teens. Without reassessing our current overdependence on grades, trophies and prestigious college acceptances, we are likely to continue to see children at physical and emotional risk; kids lacking in both character and the coping skills necessary to face the inevitable challenges of growing up. Dr. Levine poses solutions that are research-based, credible and realistic."

Dr. Levine’s previous book, The Price of Privilege was also a New York Times bestseller. She is the co-founder of Challenge Success, a project at the Stanford School of Education that focuses on providing parents and schools with the tools they need to raise healthy, motivated kids in a fast paced world.
