Jane Kristoffy is a teacher, guidance counsellor, school administrator and a mom. She is also the founder of Right Track Educational Services in Toronto. In this business, Jane provides support to students and their parents to make smart educational choices, setting them up both personally and academically for life.
She recently gave a talk on raising a resilient learner, a child who is prepared for the real world. In her research, Jane found that children today are not being taught the proper skills to launch in the real world. In parenting today, we are protecting children from life rather than preparing them for it.
She feels that we need to change our mindset.
Jane met with Janet Fanaki, founder of RESILIENT PEOPLE, to discuss the ways that we can improve our childrens' resilience, help to prepare them for the world, along with offering tips and resources for parents.
