Clinical neuropsychologist, William Stixrud, and his co-author, Ned Johnson, combine insights from clinical practice, brain science, and educational coaching in this deeply researched book. They offer practical advice and a vision for how parents can use a collaborative, mutually respectful approach to raise ‘self-driven’ children, who are independent and purpose-driven and who have a healthy definition of a successful and meaningful life. This book is a must-read for all parents and educators.
“Stixrud and Johnson provide compassionate, well-supported suggestions and strategies for parents to help their kids deal with ever-more-competitive academics and extracurriculars. The authors make a highly persuasive case for how parents can help their children segue from feeling stressed and powerless to feeling loved, trusted, and supported.” —Publishers Weekly
