ParentEd.: GenZ Grit - A Necessary Trait for Independence

ParentEd.: GenZ Grit - A Necessary Trait for Independence

The community is invited to hear author and Gen Z expert Steve Robertson for a ParentEd. session on March 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the Weber Collaboratory.

In order to fully understand and positively impact children, parents need to view this generation through a new lens. Gen Z kids are overwhelmed with a constant barrage of information and are the first digital natives, yet they struggle to navigate the pressures of social media.

Mr. Robertson will equip parents with practical tools to help children filter digital influence, as well as strategies to develop grit to later thrive once independent. Mr. Robertson has been featured in Inc., Forbes, and Entrepreneur magazines.
