Enhancing the lives of children from birth through Kindergarten

The Gift of Failure | Jessica Lahey |Parent Edge


Giving Kids the Chance to Experience Failure and the Opportunity to Solve Their Own Problems


Research has shown that the key to motivating students to own their education and develop resilience is intrinsic motivation. Jessica Lahey offers practical 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 in order to succeed. Jessica is the author of the New York Times Best Seller, The Gift of Failure – How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed. Island Books will have copies of The Gift of Failure for purchase at the event. www.jessicalahey.com
