Parent Forum: Eight Things You Cannot Do for Your Children (But Wish You Could)

Come to the next Arlington Parent Forum where Michael Thompson will discuss "Eight Things You Cannot Do for Your Children (But Wish You Could)."

Wednesday, March 15th 7-8:30pm at the Ottoson Middle School

In the U.S. today, we have a generation of adults who are dedicated to doing a great job of parenting. They want to produce healthy, happy children who are athletically skilled, socially accepted and academically successful. There is nothing wrong with these parental ambitions. However, there is an assumption that this kind of embedded parenting always adds psychological value.

In this talk, Dr. Thompson will explain the eight things that parents wish they could do for their children, but in the end they cannot.
