 Her Summit Focus:  When most people think of a perfectionistic child they think , high achieving. “Type A”, organized and well groomed. Often terms like “she’s such a perfectionist” are thrown around as a casual compliments, and yet the psychological research on perfectionism paints a vividly different picture.  Perfectionists can be disheveled, absent minded, disorganized, and struggling to stay afloat. Perfectionism is never helpful, and is often at the root of students disengagement, low motivation, risk aversion and fear of showing up.   In this talk we’ll discuss how you can help your children break through their perfectionistic impulses, to learn how to show up, take risks, be seem , stay motivated and engaged and become resilient in the face of disappointment.

 Her Summit Focus:   Homework seems like a dirty word.  Yuck.   As parents, we tend to picture the battle that starts up the minute homework is pulled out.  We feel the pressure to get it done.  To ensure our child is doing the work.  To push them to meet the expectations that are put in front of them. Over the years, through my Mom experiences and my training as an OT, I slowly figured out that homework has another purpose. And when you tap into this new purpose, it will change how you approach and view homework. You and your child will  start to move away from the tears and into strategies that not only help your child at home but in school too.
