This week, Lisa, Misty and special guest host Heather complete their review of the national bestseller The Self-Driven Child: The Science and Sense of Giving Your Kids More Control Over Their Lives by William Stixrud, Ph.D and Ned Johnson. (Or as we like to call them, Bill and Ned.)
William Stixrud, Ph.D. is a clinical neuropsychologist and a
faculty member at Children's National Medical Center and George
Washington University Medical School. He lectures widely on the
adolescent brain, meditation, and the effects of stress, sleep
deprivation, and technology overload on the brain. He has published
several influential scientific articles and is on the board of the
David Lynch Foundation.
Ned Johnson is the founder of PrepMatters, a tutoring service in Washington, DC, and the coauthor of Conquering the SAT: How Parents Can Help Teens Overcome the Pressure and Succeed. A sought-after speaker and teen coach for study skills, parent-teen dynamics, and anxiety management, his work has been featured on NPR, NewsHour, U.S. News & World Report, Time, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal.
And our very special guest host is none other than Heather Stinnett -- Misty's sister!
