Too many young people are experiencing depression, substance abuse and anxiety disorders. Many young people feel overwhelmed and exhausted and many are unprepared to navigate life's challenges.
Using the latest developments in science and research, Levine identifies the skills that children need to succeed in turbulent times: adaptability, curiosity, collaboration, tolerance for failure and optimism. She also will offer solutions that parents and guardians can use to bolster these skills and raise individuals who are prepared, healthy, enthusiastic and happy.
Levine is a recognized expert and resource for education and parenting and the author of the New York Times bestseller "The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage Is Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids." Her most recent book is "Ready or Not: Preparing Our Kids to Thrive in an Uncertain and Rapidly Changing World."
