Coffee Break deals with affluent teens
The Laguna Beach District PTA will host guest speaker Madeline Levine at this month’s coffee break.
The Coffee Break will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the Surf and Sand Resort.
Levine will speak on her book, “The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage Are Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids,” which explores the reasons why teenagers from affluent families are experiencing epidemic rates of emotional problems.
Backed by research, Levine proposes solutions that are both practical and credible.
District Superintendent Robert Fraisse encourages the community to attend.
“Dr. Levine’s presentation will be another highlight in the highly effective Coffee Break presentations for this year. Her message is one that all parents will want to hear,” Fraisse said.
