Masterclass, The Miracle of Case Method of Parenting and Grandparenting
This is an event that will appeal to parents, grandparents and children. Please encourage family members and friends to join you on the Zoom. Hosted by HCA member, Ainsley Barahona Santos
Thursday, 3 December 2020, at 8pm AEST via Zoom
Anne Jones, a mother and a Harvard graduate (HBS ’97), who lives in Atlanta, will share how to simplify the proven Harvard Business School case method into a framework a child can understand. Anyone can tell a one minute story with a question at the end! The children can become confident decision makers and thoughtful problem solvers. Parents bond with their children while using a world-renowned method to prepare their children for life.
Anne has written a book, The Case Method Miracle, to show how the case study method used at HBS can teach children independent thinking, wise judgement and confidence. This method can be used with children of any age, starting as young as age two and extending all the way through the teenage years and beyond.
Involving simple, one minute stories, the case study is something anyone can do anywhere and at any time - and the ‘miracle’ refers to the outcome seen in children’s behaviour. This can be a game changer, especially during the formative years of childhood, and will help children become independent decision makers ,who own their decisions, and enable them to self-correct, lessening the need for direction and correction from caregivers.
