Does your child have many different interests and curiosities? Do they show aptitudes in several subjects and have trouble fitting neatly into one box? If so, they might be a multipotentialite: someone with many interests and creative pursuits in life. Join us for an evening of education and discussion aimed at supporting multipotentialite children and teens. Learn about what it means to be a multipotentialite, the unique challenges faced by those who are wired this way, and how you as a parent can help your children embrace their multipotentiality as a strength. Take home practical tips that will help your child plan for the future and start thinking about ways to integrate many subjects into their lives and careers.
