The Maria DeHaas Speaker Series Presents William Stixrud, Ph.D., and Ned JohnsonAuthors of The Self-Driven Child: The Science and Sense of Giving Your Kids More Control Over Their Lives
October 11 at 7:00 p.m.Cindric Performing Arts Center
William Stixrud, Ph.D., and Ned Johnson will offer three age-appropriate talks for parents of children in grades JrK-4, 5-8, and 9-12. They will offer daytime talks for Lower and Middle School parents and an evening talk geared towards Upper School parents, but open for all parents to attend.
Stixrud is a nationally known clinical neuropsychologist who helps kids gripped by anxiety.
Johnson is a motivational coach who runs a premier tutoring service. Several years ago, they each began noticing that high-performing kids were coming to them acutely anxious and lacking real motivation.
Together they discovered that the single most important thing for children to thrive is to feel that they are in charge of their lives. But this doesn’t mean giving up your authority as a parent. The Self-Driven Child
offers cutting-edge brain science, the latest discoveries in behavioral therapy, and case studies from the thousands of young people Stixrud and Johnson have helped to teach you how to equip your child in facing challenges with resolve.
