In this highly competitive world where tutoring, micro-managing, and helicoptering seem to be the norm, parents often feel helpless trying to support their child in a productive way.

Discussion Topics Include:

  • Challenging questions that aim to jumpstart an essential conversation for parents on why we behave the way we do and how we make the choices we make in helping to navigate our teens through competitive and uncertain times
  • Anecdotes from the author’s personal and professional life working with teens that exhibit both poor parenting choices and ones to model
  • Research and tips gleaned from interviews with education thought leaders, teachers and administrators, counselors, psychologists, and other authors
  • Tangible steps and ideas to help parents preserve your relationship with your teen
  • Advice on fostering grit and resilience and strategies to help your teen approach life with purpose while navigating a competitive academic environment
  • Clear expectations of your appropriate role in the college admission process
