Jason Warnick has spent 15 years interviewing kids and families interested in Hyde School. He has seen teens as they begin their freshman, sophomore, or junior year, and he has watched them as they have come to gain confidence in who they are and where they are going in their lives. He’s observed three – what he calls “surprising” – traits that these kids possess:

  1. Compassion – in the age of social media and digital everything, this trait can get lost…
  2. Honesty –including the importance of self-honesty and the ability to hear what others say about us…
  3. Humor – being able to laugh at oneself and not take ourselves too seriously.

And where do kids learn these traits?  You guessed it – from their parents. How are you doing in these three areas?
