Fay Welcomes Bestselling Author Madeline Levine On March 25

Fay School is delighted to welcome New York Times bestselling author Madeline Levine on Monday, March 25. Based on her New York Times bestselling book by the same name, in this talk Dr. Levine tackles our current narrow definition of success—how it unnecessarily stresses academically talented kids and marginalizes many more whose talents and interests are less amenable to measurement. The development of skills needed to be successful in the 21st century—creativity, collaboration, innovation—are not easily developed in our competitive, fast-paced, high pressure world. Dr. Levine gives practical, research-based solutions to help parents return their families to healthier and saner versions of themselves by remembering that successful parenting is measured 20 or 30 years down the road, not at the end of any particular grading period.  

Madeline Levine, Ph.D. is a psychologist with close to 30 years of experience as a clinician, consultant, educator, and author. She is also a co-founder of Challenge Success, a project at Stanford’s Graduate School of Education that provides families and schools with the practical research-based tools they need to raise healthy, motivated kids, capable of reaching their full potential. She has had a large clinical practice with an emphasis on child and adolescent problems and parenting issues and is a sought-after consultant and lecturer at schools and businesses across the country. She has been featured on The Today ShowThe Lehrer Report, and NPR. Emailed over a million times, her August 2012 New York Times op-ed piece, “Raising Successful Children,” is one of the most emailed op-ed pieces in the history of The New York Times.
