RAISING KIDS WITH CHARACTER IN TODAY’S COMPETITIVE CULTURE
 
An Evening With Trisha Ross Anderson of Harvard University’s Making Caring Common Project

Tuesday, May 1 @ 7 pm
Morristown High School Auditorium
 
Today’s achieve-at-all-costs pressure starts young… and may come with a cost.  Almost 80 percent of students in a Making Caring Common national survey chose personal achievement and happiness as being more important than caring for others. 

Trisha will share the results of this research, discuss the implications and suggest strategies to help parents raise caring, empathetic and ethical children.
 
This program will address issues impacting children of ALL ages.
 
RSVP requested here.
 
Immediately following Trisha’s presentation, please join the discussion with our specially selected panel:
