Parent Ed Feature

HELPING OUR CHILDREN DEVELOP GRIT WHEN FACED WITH ADVERSITY

Presented by: Jane Wilkinson

Research shows that grit (resilience, perseverance and positivity) can be a stronger indicator of success than talent or intelligence. Educator Jane Wilkinson will present practical ways to develop grit in children, resulting in more tenacious learners and empathetic citizens. Jane is a learning/dyslexia specialist and teacher at the Atlanta Speech School. She has spent several years studying how to develop resilience and empathy in children and has spoken locally and nationally on the topic.

Primary and Lower School Parents - Inglett Room C
Parent Education is an important service the PA provides to our parent community and falls under the Community Life program of the HIES Parents' Association. Our Parent Education program provides parents with opportunities to hear from local and national educational experts, special guest speakers, and from teachers and parents within our HIES community with experience in childhood education / development on a wide range of child related topics such as academics, emotional and social development, and other current parenting and education related topics.

Parent Education programs are generally divided into two main groups: Primary / Lower School and Middle / Upper School (though our Parent Education Course Catalog identifies the target audience for each course so that parents can target the courses that will most closely meet their needs based on the grades and ages of their children).
