Do you worry that your child is stressed out, withdrawn, or anxious due to pressure to "succeed?" If so, this upcoming presentation by Challenge Success is just for you:
Thursday, October 27, 6:00 - 7:30 in The Annex on the Corte Madera Campus.
In a high-stakes, high-pressure culture, parent and school expectations may have unintentional but damaging effects on students. Increasing demands on students may lead to unhealthy stress, resulting in burnout, disengagement, or debilitating physical and mental health symptoms.
This workshop examines the tension that parents, students, and teachers often experience over issues such as homework, grades, and the culture of competition, and offers tools for creating a healthier school climate.
In this workshop you will:
- Explore the latest research on student health, school engagement, and school reform practices
- Examine how students today are coping - or not - in the high-pressure, fast-paced culture
- Learn effective strategies to work with students and their parents to reduce performance pressure and stress without sacrificing achievement or engagement in school
