In The Price of Privilege, Dr. Levine identified the deficits created by parents giving kids of privilege too much of the wrong things and not enough of the right things. In Teach Your Children Well, she tore down the myth that good grades, high test scores, and college acceptances should define the parenting endgame.
In Ready or Not, to be released February 2020, she continues to show how these same parenting practices, combined with a need to shelter children from discomfort and anxiety, are setting future generations up to fail.
Dr. Levine will offer day-to-day solutions parents can use to raise kids who are prepared, enthusiastic, and ready to face an unknown future with confidence and optimism.
Presented by SPEAK, the coalition of San Francisco K-8 schools
who have joined together to enhance parent education.
