The class with the highest attendance will receive a donut party. Please invite your family and friends from other schools as well. The event is free of charge.
Instilling Grit:The Art of Raising Highly Self-Motivated Kids
No, it isn’t your imagination that children in our nation today seem more anxious and less independent. More entitled and less capable. More worried and less resilient. Why is this?
Come hear author and prolific speaker Amy Maus discuss how to instill grit, self-motivation, and independence in our children, even when the current cultural climate pressures us to do the opposite.
- How we create or suppress grit and internal motivation in our kids.
- Today’s culture says: rescue, manage, and do too much for our children.
- Why anxiety is on a steep rise in our children and youth. How to build independence, boost self-esteem, and create long-term grit!
God Bless you and your family,
Mrs. Michelle Etter, Principal
