Princeton Common Ground (PCG) is proud to host distinguished NY Times best-selling author Jessica Lahey as she shares her timely and relevant tips to help parents prepare for a pandemic summer with their kids. With the spread of coronavirus prompting the delay or cancellation of most in-person summer camps and programs for kids of all ages, parents are deeply concerned about the enduring feelings of loss, isolation, boredom and continued academic disruption. Thankfully, Jessica Lahey, author of the The Gift of Failure, believes there's a lot of reasons for parents to be optimistic over the summer months and for kids to be engaged and learning during this period of physical distancing due to COVID-19.
Please join us for this interactive live webinar with Q&A on Wednesday, May 27, at 4:00 p.m. moderated by Alfred F. Dugan III, headmaster of Princeton Academy of the Sacred Heart.
