[ARCHIVED] - You're Invited: Creating a High Performing Mindset in Our Kids -

You're invited as ParentWiser, the parent education committee of the Issaquah PTSA Council, brings John O'Sullivan, author of "Changing the Game," to our community.

Conventional wisdom holds that youth sports are a positive experience for our children, yet 70 percent of children drop out of organized athletics by age 13.

Youth sports have become an ultra-competitive, adult-centered enterprise that has taken the "play" out of "play ball" for far too many kids, but we can change that.

In O'Sullivan's "Creating a High Performing Mindset in Our Kids" talk, you will learn:

  • How to keep your kids in sports   
  • How to give your child a competitive edge   
  • To push and praise your kids to perform well   
  • Three ways to change your kids’ sports experience for the better  
  • How to motivate your kids to take ownership for sports   
  • How to help, and not hinder, their performance through the things you say and do

The event is 6:30 p.m. Feb. 27, 2017, at Issaquah High School, 700 Second Ave. S.E.

The event free for all PTA/PTSA members of Issaquah schools. For non-members, a $10 donation at the door is requested. Reserve your seat online.
