    “Balancing the Achievement Treadmill”
    BStrong Together Parent Coffee

    Barrington High School Counselor Joan Bell facilitates a panel discussion to help parents of elementary/middle school children pave the way for a love of learning rather than a grade-driven mindset. Our hope is to empower parents to establish effective strategies that celebrate their child as an independent, resilient, internally motivated, and emotionally healthy individual/student.

    Discussion will include developing and maintaining a healthy balance between school/co-curricular activities and allowing for the unencumbered joy of being a child. 

    A panel of Barrington High School faculty will share scenarios regarding students they work with on a daily basis who lack the skill set for independent academic success, struggle with emotional challenges, and have a negative attitude about school due to excessive academic expectations. Suggestions will include how to manage the realities of a competitive academic environment while recognizing the needs of the developing child/adolescent.
