[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.
