Event Type

Dr. William Stixrud and Ned Johnson, authors of the best-seller, The Self-Driven Child, will discuss topics from their new book, What Do You Say?: Talking with Kids to Build Motivation, Stress Tolerance, and a Happy Home. The focus of the evening will be how to communicate with kids in a way that supports the autonomy and self-drive that are so important for healthy development. Although informed by extensive research, the talk will emphasize practical communication strategies for building a strong emotional connection with our kids, communicating healthy (versus toxic) expectations, fostering intrinsic motivation, and helping kids find their own reasons to change when they’re struggling. Q&A will follow.
