A few years ago, Bill Stixrud and Ned Johnson started noticing that even high-performing kids were coming to them acutely stressed and lacking motivation. Some stumbled in school; others hit college and unraveled. What Stixrud and Johnson discovered was that the best antidote to stress was to give kids more control over their own lives. As parents, we can only drive our kids so far. At some point, they will have to take the wheel. But there is a lot you can do before then to help them tackle the road ahead with resilience and imagination. Drawn from thousands of case studies and the latest discoveries in brain science and behavioral therapy, The Self-Driven Child will show you how to actively set your child on the real road to success.
