    Dr. Rachna Varia, PhD | Parenting Toward Grit, But Not Grind: Moving Away from Helicopter Parenting and Allowing Our Kids More Space
    Grit is the combination of passion and persistence over time. But, how should we handle it when our children lack passion or enthusiasm and still have to do the hard thing (study for a test, prepare ahead of time for a project, navigate social relationships)? Dr. Varia, co-founder of Mindwell Psychology, will discuss how we can be mindful of cognitive distortions, watch how we talk to our kids using a growth mindset model, create more space, and pause before reacting.
