Ms. Lahey outlines a plan for how parents and teachers can encourage autonomy, while still offering support, to help children grow into independent, resilient and confident adults. “We have taught our kids to fear failure, and in doing so, we have blocked the surest and clearest path to their success.” ~Jessica Lahey
