Special parent presentation: Raising children with "grit," Nov. 16

A special presentation for Niskayuna parents on the topic of raising children with 'grit" will take place on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. in the Hillside Elementary School cafeteria.

The presenter is psychologist Dr. Randy Cale, who speaks at school districts around the Capital Region and has presented at Niskayuna in the past.

The title of his talk is, “Why Kids Give Up, Fail to Initiate & Lack Passion.” According to Dr. Cale, the way to reverse this is by nurturing kids with grit and heart. He defines grit as containing the power of resilience, persistence and passion.

The presentation is open to all Niskayuna parents/guardians.
