On Oct. 21 at 7 p.m., author and psychologist Dr. Robert Evans, Ed.D., will present his talk: “Raising Healthy Resilient Kids in Challenging Times.”

Evans says, “All parents want their children to become resilient and confident. But in a fast-changing, competitive world they increasingly find it hard to let their kids learn the vital life lessons that come from facing challenge and disappointment. The balancing act is a hard one: how to guide and protect our youth yet still let them grapple with real-life issues so as to build true resilience.”

Evans will offer concrete ways to manage this key dilemma. He is the author of many articles and three books including “Family Matters: How Schools Can Cope with The Crisis in Childrearing.”

This lecture is free and open to the public at 235 Front St. in the Fireman Center for Performing Arts in Tabor Academy’s Hoyt Hall.
