Teaching Our Children Courage, Resilience, and How to Fail Well: Parenting Today’s Post-COVID Digital Children

Empower your child to thrive in school, work, and life! Join our dynamic seminar to learn resilience, digital skills and how to “fail well”.

In this globally delivered talk, Lance King will discuss essential skills for children of all ages to effectively navigate life's challenges and academic setbacks, fostering strength and resilience.

We believe today's children are truly distinct, having navigated the digital landscape and endured the challenges of the Covid pandemic from a young age. Despite being immersed in endless online knowledge and connectivity, they also face a world increasingly designed to capture their attention for profit. This constant connection can worsen their fears and anxieties.

How can we effectively guide and support our children in this complex digital era?

This seminar will show parents all the vital digital and non-digital skills their children need to maximize their success at school, at university and in all future careers and business opportunities. It will give parents many practical tips on how to raise children to be resilient, courageous and actively engaged with both the real and the digital worlds. 

This talk will be in English but the slides are already translated into Vietnamese. 


Parenting skills you’ll learn:

  • The role of self-esteem and self-confidence in effective learning, and how to develop both in our children.

  • Strategies for teaching our children how to “fail well” through their challenges, and continuously succeed in school, university and jobs.

  • Practical tips on balancing digital engagement with real-world connection in today’s world.
