This month Fay School is continuing its Ideas&Insights series for parents. This session will focus on children’s self-esteem.

Dr. Rob Evans will provide insights:

“Self-Esteem: What It Really Is; What Parents Can—and Can’t—Do to Help It”
Monday, March 28, 7:00- 8:30 pm

Self-esteem is perhaps the most widely known—and misunderstood—concept in child psychology. It’s seen as essential to children’s happiness and performance. But there is actually no way to give self-esteem to a child, and the experiences that build it contradict what most parents believe. Dr. Rob Evans will clarify self-esteem and its role in students’ lives and offer specific, practical suggestions for helping children gain confidence and competence.

This presentation is part of Fay’s series, Ideas&Insights at Fay School, which features informative speakers, workshops, and presentations on topics that are relevant to parents today.

The event is free to attend and open to the public. No registration is required to attend and parking will be available at 25 Middle Road in Southborough, MA.
