For Parents...

SAVE THE DATE: November 19, lecture by Dr. Ginsburg, Pediatrician and Expert on Adolescent Issues

            "…Our goal has to be to prepare children to be happy, healthy 35-year-olds.”--Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg

If that’s the goal, then what should we—parents, educators and allies of children and teens—be doing right now? How can we help kids manage academic and social stresses? How can we guide them to bounce back from disappointments and live with optimism in an imperfect world?

On Monday, November 19, Dr. Ginsburg (, a nationally-known researcher on adolescent resilience, will speak about 

"Authentic Success: Raising Children & Adolescents Prepared to Thrive through Good and Challenging Times." 

The talk will take place from 6-8 p.m. at Central High School, 1700 W. Olney Avenue. 

Co-sponsored by Central and Masterman High Schools, it is free and open to all Philadelphia public school parents and educators. Dr. Ginsburg’s books will be on sale; profits will benefit student clubs at both high schools.

Please tell your friends and family about this event that will surely be very beneficial to many of us who have adolescents in our homes.

He will be focusing on coping skills for todays kids.
