Happy New Year!

Please join us for the next speaker event on the Self-Driven Child, by Dr. William Stixrud and Ned Johnson.  While the emphasis of this talk will be for parents of middle and high school students, elementary parents are welcome to attend.  Their talk provides information on helping students become more self-driven and in control of their decisions and actions.  Giving kids a sense of control provides them a strong base to get through middle and high school and thrive in college and beyond.

As always, thank you for getting this information out to your groups.

The Self-Driven Child:  The Science and Sense of Giving Kids More Control Over Their Lives

Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020 - 7:00 - 9:00pm | MVHS Spartan Theater | 3535 Truman Ave., Mountain View

Evidence strongly suggests that age-appropriate autonomy is vital for young people’s mental health—it helps them to sculpt brains that are resilient, resourceful, and ready to take on new challenges.

When The Self-Driven Child authors Bill Stixrud and Ned Johnson began comparing notes years ago, they discovered a common problem among their young clients: kids were feeling acutely stressed. Many complained that they felt powerless to shape their own destinies. Some stumbled in high school, while others hit college and unraveled. Bill is a clinical neuropsychologist who helps kids gripped by anxiety or struggling to learn. Ned is a motivational coach who runs an elite tutoring service. Together they discovered that the best antidote to stress is to give kids a sense of control.

In this talk, Bill and Ned offer a combination of cutting-edge brain science, the latest discoveries in behavioral therapy, and case studies drawn from the thousands of kids they've helped.  They advise that parents and educators adopt the role of consultant rather than manager to give kids more responsibility for their own life decisions even before they leave home. 

Audience:  Parents and educators of students grades 6 - 12.
