ISACS Parent Series: How to Raise a Self-Driven Child

Join author and expert Ned Johnson to learn why fostering a healthy sense of control is so important for children's intrinsic motivation, success, mental health, and happiness. Parents and caregivers will learn how to pivot from manager to parent consultant, how to be a non-anxious presence, and will leave with effective strategies to use with children ranging in age from tots to teens. Ned Johnson is the founder of PrepMatters, an educational company that helps students succeed in high school and get into college. He has spent nearly 50,000 one-on-one hours helping students conquer an alphabet of standardized tests, learn to manage their anxiety, and develop their own motivation to succeed. With Dr. William Stixrud, Johnson co-authored The Self-Driven Child: The Science and Sense of Giving Your Kids More Control Over Their Lives and What Do You Say? How To Talk with Kids to Build Motivation, Stress Tolerance, and a Happy Home. He is the host of The Self-Driven Child podcast and his work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, BBC, and many others.    Join with Google Meet: https://meet.google.com/ycm-nnkv-hot Or dial: (US) +1 401-542-3216 PIN: 214857307# Learn more about Meet at: https://support.google.com/a/users/answer/9282720
