What Do You Say? How to Talk with Kids to Build Stress Tolerance, Motivation, and a Happy Home

November 17, 2021, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


All caregivers want children who are happy, motivated and stress-free. In their first book The Self-Driven Child, Dr. William Stixrud and Ned Johnson shared the tools needed to enhance a child’s drive, confidence, and healthy decision-making to move children of all ages from powerlessness to purpose. They also provided the action-steps needed to help students improve academic performance, enhance career success, and support positive emotional well-being. Stixrud and Johnson, who have 60 years combined experience talking to young people one-on-one are back to teach us “What Do You Say?” in order to help turn these concepts into action. This free event is open to the public and anyone can join.
