In a talk titled “Finding Balance in Today’s Culture of Competition,” Dr. Denise Pope, a senior lecturer at the Stanford University School of Education and author of the award-winning Doing School, provides parents with strategies to reduce stress at home without sacrificing school achievement and college goals. Presented by ParentMap.
