DARIEN, Conn. -- The YWCA of Darien/Norwalk will present "Letting Your Kids Fail: Building Resilience" on Wednesday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m. at Hindley Elementary School.

This program will address the lack of coping skills that children who are excessively sheltered and overly reliant on their parents' experience when faced with difficult circumstances, and the importance of letting children experience challenges in life to learn and grow.
