The Mt. Lebanon School District and PTA Council hosted a presentation by Dr. Christopher Willard on Growing Up Stressed or Growing Up Mindful on August 20 to a standing room only audience in the Fine Arts Theatre. The response to the presentation was very positive. Dr. Willard not only spoke about how mindfulness is good for our kids but is also very good for adults. As he said, "Stressed out anxious adults create stressed out anxious kids." A book signing was held after the presentation so Dr. Willard could sign copies of his book "Growing Up Mindful: Essential Practices to Help Children, Teens, and Families Find Balance, Calm, and Resilience."
On Tuesday, August 21, Dr. Willard presented a second time during the opening day convocation program for all staff. The Tuesday, August 21 video presentation is the version available due to a technical issue with the filming of the Monday night video.
