  • Hinsdale D86 and CCSD181 Community Speaker Series Event

    Registration is Open for Community Speaker Series Event: "The Gift of Failure"

    Presentations by Author "Jessica Lahey" Slated for November 16 and 17

    Hinsdale Township High School District 86 and Community Consolidated School District 181 announce that registration is now open for the first of three 2017-18 Community Speaker Series events - "The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed." The event is named for the book authored by event speaker Jessica Lahey, a writer, speaker, and educator.

    The 90-minute event is being hosted at The Community House (Hinsdale, IL) on Thursday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m. and on Friday, November 17 at 9:30 a.m. Registration is required and can be completed online at www.d181foundation.org.

    The series is presented by District 86 and District 181 in conjunction with the D181 Foundation and The Community House and was designed to inform and inspire families about issues in education and parenting. Event coordinators note that in "The Gift of Failure" session, Lahey will discuss issues of motivation, resilience, and encouragement and share current research on those topics, as well as practical advice for giving children the kind of support they truly need to succeed.

    District 181 Superintendent Dr. Don White says he believes the topic is a critical one. "As a community, it is important we talk about why it is okay to let children experience disappointment. Even if it comes from a desire to protect them, in the end, I think we better serve children by allowing them to learn how to problem solve and how to manage their feelings. These are key skills that, in my experience as a parent and as an educator, will be critical to their success and well-being. I look forward to welcoming Jessica Lahey in guiding us through this key conversation!"

She has been an English, Latin, and writing teacher in middle and high school for over a decade, writes the biweekly Parent-Teacher Conference advice column for the New York Times, is a contributing writer at the Atlantic, and appears as a commentator on Vermont Public Radio.
