“Raising Doers” is topic for parents at Hillview Middle School on Oct. 15
This talk is for parents who want their children to grow up to be passionate “doers” who make a positive difference in the world. Mike challenges the common assumption that children must stop playing to develop into productive adults. On the contrary, doers are highly self-motivated people for whom work is play.
Drawing from his background as the author of the book Playborhood: Turn Your Neighborhood Into a Place for Play, Mike shows how children can connect the dots from a playful childhood to an active, meaningful adulthood. The talk, which is open to the community, takes place on Wednesday, October 15 from 10:00 to 11:30 am at Hillview Middle School in Menlo Park.
