WORKSHOP: Can Marshmallows Predict Your Success in Life?
Mar 20, 2015 - 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
Harrison Avenue School, Harrison, NY
Walter Mischel’s famous marshmallow test is getting a lot of buzz these days. His new book, The Marshmallow Test describes an association he found between preschoolers who could resist a marshmallow at age four and many positive outcomes later on. Fortunately, having self-control is not a “fixed trait,” but rather one that can be taught. Find out not only how to say, “no” when “no” is needed, but also how to keep saying “yes” when “yes” is needed. The talk will also focus on developing grittiness and a growth mindset, important traits needed in today’s society for ourselves and for our children.
