Keynote Address – Short Term Comfort. Long Term Disappointment
Raising Accountable, Responsible, and Courageous Children
Parenting is rewarding and humbling; hard and exhausting! In the day-to-day hustle, it’s all too easy to assume our children’s responsibilities and lower our expectations in the name of convenience, care, safety…and love. These well-intentioned but often overprotective behaviors can hinder a child’s development and set them up for failure.
Keynote speaker Mark Steven Reardon will educate and inspire parents to raise accountable, responsible, and courageous children. He will share humorous and thought-provoking anecdotes, strategies, and solutions for raising children prepared to thrive in adolescence and adulthood.
Mark Steven Reardon is founder, president, and CEO of Centrepointe Leadership, an executive coaching and training company. He has dedicated his professional career to discovering and articulating best practices in teaching, leading, and learning. He also serves as The Classical Academies Board President.
*JumpStart sessions will be available to view on August 1st.
