Author-Talk for Ages 13+: THE GRIT GUIDE FOR TEENS by Dr. Caren Baruch-Feldman

When the going gets tough, it’s time to get gritty. Written by a clinical-child and school psychologist and based in the latest research, The Grit Guide for Teens will help you build perseverance, resilience, self-control, and stamina.

For teens, setting and reaching goals is an important part of growing up. Whether teens are focused on doing well in school, facing their fears, making friends, excelling in sports, or mastering the fine arts or music — teens need to persevere in order to succeed. We have all probably heard the term “grit”, but what does it really mean?

Join the Shames JCC on the Hudson along with the Tourette Association of America Hudson Valley Chapter for an author presentation by Dr. Caren Baruch-Feldman on her recently published best-seller, The Grit Guide for Teens. The talk is geared to parents and teens with special guest appearances from two TAA Youth Ambassadors.

Fee: $18 per Family; Member $15 per Family.  Includes pizza dinner, soft-drinks, author-talk, and book signing.

Audience: Parent and teen attendance is welcome in any combination that works for you. Parent(s), teen(s), or parent(s) and teen(s) together.
