Why Parents Need to Let Their Children Fail: Free Talk by Author Jessica Leahy Wednesday, April 15

From the Fay School

March 29, 2015

Jessica Lahey, a parenting and education expert, writes the bi-weekly column "The Parent-Teacher Conference" for The New York Times, and is a contributing writer for The Atlantic. Her new book, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed, will be published in August.

What's the best way to motivate students to own their education and develop resilience?

Leahy offers advice for fostering intrinsic motivation and weaning kids off of extrinsic motivators such as short-term rewards, bribes, honors, coercion, and yes, even grades, while giving kids the support and encouragement they need to succeed.

She also will summarize current research on autonomy-supportive parenting, competence, rewards, praise, and failure.

When:   7:00pm Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Where: Fay's Harris Theater
                  (signs will be on campus directing visitors to the theater)

Parking: Please park at Fay's Primary School (25 Middle Road, Southborough)
                     or at Fay's Office of Advancement (31 Main Street, Southborough)
