Smart Parenting For Smart Kids: Nurturing Your Child’s True Potential
Renowned Psychologist Eileen Kennedy-Moore to Speak at Stanwich School
Thursday, November 14 at 7:00pm
257 Stanwich Road, Greenwich
According to psychologist Eileen Kennedy-Moore, it takes more than school smarts to create a fulfilling life. In fact, many bright children face special challenges: some are driven by perfectionism; some are afraid of effort, because they’re used to instant success; some struggle to get along with their peers; some are outwardly successful but just don’t feel good about themselves.
Parents who are interested in helping their children find a balance between achievement and happiness are invited to join Stanwich School to hear author Eileen Kennedy-Moore speak about her highly acclaimed book, Smart Parenting For Smart Kids: Nurturing Your Child’s True Potential. This presentation, followed by questions-and-answers, will be held on Thursday, November 14 at 7:00pm at the Stanwich School, 257 Stanwich Road, Greenwich.
This practical and compassionate book explains the reasons behind these struggles and offers parents do-able strategies to help children cope with feelings, embrace learning, and build satisfying relationships. Drawing from research as well as Kennedy-Moore’s clinical experience, the book focuses on the essential skills children need to make the most of their abilities and become capable, confident, and caring people.
In her book, Eileen Kennedy-Moore, PhD, and co-author Mark S. Lowenthal, PsyD, offer practical advice to help smart children succeed academically and socially. Kennedy-Moore will talk about the roadblocks that frequently arise for smart children between the ages of 6 and 12, and the “seven fundamental challenges” faced by smart children — and, of course, their parents.
