All parents want their children to grow up to be successful, independent and safe. Attempting to parent for all three goals can be tricky. The line between the three outcomes is sometimes blurred. It can be difficult to know how to parent so that young people understand the relationship and contradictions between these three objectives. In this presentation Carol Ann Tomlinson, will share her observations on parenting that will prepare young people for a sound transition to adulthood.
Dr Tomlinson taught young adolescents for 20 years before her career at the University of Virginia where she now teachers older adolescents. In this informative session Tomlinson will share stories from her students to illustrate the key principles of “balanced” parenting to build confident and responsible young adults who think creatively, critically and wisely. Carol Ann Tomlinson Ph.D is an award winning professor and Chair of Educational Leadership, Foundations, and Policy at the University of Virginia where she is also the Co-Director of the University’s Institute on Academic Diversity. Her important books on differentiated classrooms (Responding to the Needs of All Learners) have been translated into 12 languages. Tomlinson consults regularly with educators internationally to facilitate positive school environments and advance innovative, and critical thinking for both the struggling and the advanced learner.
