Homework, sports, GPAs, clubs, college applications, SATs—the stress of today’s high-pressure, fast-paced school culture can interfere with the health, happiness, and development of children and teens. 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.
