Raising resilient children: Free event

By Lindsay Advocate

The TLDSB District School Council – Parent Involvement Committee is offering a free evening with Dr. Alex Russell, a clinical psychologist who will speak about the importance of raising resilient children.

Learn strategies to ensure your children are emotionally prepared to cope with life’s challenges.

It will be held May 23 at IE Weldon Secondary School from 7-8:30 p.m.

Dr. Alex Russell is a clinical psychologist who lives and works in Toronto. He provides assessments and psychotherapy to children and adults, in addition to consulting with schools, teachers, and psychologists. He is intimately familiar with the culture of the school system, and the relationship that parents, teachers, and counsellors share with regard to the children we are raising.

Russell offers a fresh perspective on raising children that is reassuringly familiar and strikingly sensible. The heart of his message is that children learn through the experience of non-catastrophic, painful failure, and it is through the process of these failures that they mature into resilient, resourceful, and emotionally balanced individuals.
