The Self-Driven Child

William Stixrud PhD

Overview

More than ever, young people are stressed, unmotivated, and struggling with anxiety and depression. What can parents do to help them? According to William Stixrud, Ph.D., and Ned Johnson, the answer to adolescent stress lies in giving children a better sense of control over their lives.

In The Self-Driven Child: The Science and Sense of Giving Your Kids More Control Over Their Lives, authors Stixrud and Johnson advise parents on how to develop a child's sense of control. Stixrud is a clinical neuropsychologist and faculty member at Children's National Medical Center and the George Washington University School of Medicine. Johnson is a public speaker, teen coach, and founder of PrepMatters, a tutoring service in Washington, DC.

This book uses brain science, statistics, and personal anecdotes to provide practical ways for both parents and their children to combat adolescent stress, anxiety, and depression.
