“Lenore had a crowd of 200 laughing so hard that many of my friends said they felt like they’d just seen a great comedy show. Her speech was one of the most entertaining and enlightening ever. It showed that we can trust ourselves and our children so they actually learn to trust themselves. All parents, helicopter or not, would benefit from her talk!” – Prof. Joann Messina, Princeton, NJ “Anyone interested in seeing our children develop greater self-confidence and resilience would do well to read her book and hear her speak.” – Olen Kalkus, Headmaster, Princeton Academy
