Stanwich hosts parenting expert

Parents who are interested in helping their children find a balance between achievement and happiness are invited to join Stanwich School to hear renowned psychologist and author Eileen Kennedy-Moore speak about her book, Smart Parenting For Smart Kids: Nurturing Your Child’s True Potential, on Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. at the school.

According to Ms. Kennedy-Moore, it takes more than school smarts to create a fulfilling life. In fact, many bright children face special challenges. Some are driven by perfectionism, some are afraid of effort because they’re used to instant success, some struggle to get along with their peers and some are outwardly successful but don’t feel good about themselves.

Smart Parenting For Smart Kids: Nurturing Your Child’s True Potential explains the reasons behind these struggles and offers parents doable strategies to help children cope with feelings, embrace learning and build satisfying relationships. Drawing from research as well as Ms. Kennedy-Moore’s clinical experience, the book focuses on the essential skills children need to make the most of their abilities and become capable, confident and caring people.

In her presentation, Ms. Kennedy-Moore will talk about the roadblocks that frequently arise for smart children between the ages of six and 12, and the “seven fundamental challenges” faced by smart children — and their parents.
