How To Raise Successful Adults by Lynn Kachmarik

Research revels powerful information about how parents are raising their children today and its effect on their development, in and out of the classroom.

Social media, the pressure to have their children be the top academic students as well as the best in extra curricular activities is leaving us with book smart kids but less capable of taking care of themselves.

Depression rates have tripled as well as we are raising a generation of children with less self-efficacy then ever before.

We must partner with parents and help them to maneuver these ever growing pressures today, if we want to continue to have character building educational programs during and after school.
