TRIAD Speaker Series



Please join us for this year's TRIAD Speaker presentation, featuring, Dr. Madeline Levine on Tuesday, April 7 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. in the Agnes Jeffrey Shedd Theater. Dr. Levine will be speaking about "Parenting for Authentic Success".

Tickets available online here for $10 each.

Madeline Levine, Ph.D. is a psychologist with close to 30 years of experience as a clinician, consultant, educator, and author. Her New York Times bestseller, The Price of Privilege, explores the reasons why teenagers from affluent families are experiencing epidemic rates of emotional problems. Her latest book, Teach Your Children Well, also a New York Times bestseller, tackles our current narrow definition of success – how it unnecessarily stresses academically talented kids and marginalizes many more whose talents and interests are less amenable to measurement. The development of skills needed to be successful in the 21st century - creativity, collaboration, innovation - are not easily developed in our competitive, fast-paced, high pressure world. Teach Your Children Well gives practical, research-based solutions to help parents return their families to healthier and saner versions of themselves by remembering that successful parenting is measured 20 or 30 years down the road, not at the end of any particular grading period. Both books have been translated into Chinese, Russian, Japanese and multiple other languages.

“Parenting Mission Statement”

While we all hope that our children will do well in school, we hope with even greater fervor that they will do well in life. Our job is to help them know and appreciate themselves deeply, to be resilient in the face of adversity, to approach the world with zest, to find work that is satisfying, friends and spouses who are loving and loyal, and to hold a deep belief that they have something meaningful to contribute to the world.

- Madeline Levine, PhD

Now in its third year, the Triad Speaker Series is a collaborative effort between The Wellington School, Columbus School for Girls, and Columbus Academy to engage and inspire faculty, parents, and students.
