While we are proud of our high achieving children, we all need to come together to advocate a community culture of balance. Let us appreciate diversity in ability and goals. And let us value our children's mental health as much as their ability to ace a test.

There is no doubt that our kids are under ridiculous pressure to succeed by preforming better than their peers in all measurable ways, i.e., SATs, grades, sports. leadership positions, award recognitions. Then why make a healthy discussion about mental health and the overwhelming pressure to succeed a contest? More winners and losers.
