In this fast-paced, achievement oriented world, it's tough to parent and to find the type of environment that is best for your child. This lunch and learn will help you to sort through parenting challenges surrounding "fit," including parent background, the push for prestige, social media culture and how parents are afraid to speak about the challenges their children face. We will address the implications of not addressing the issue of fit and practical solutions to guide your child to their highest potential.
