SRVCPTA is pleased to
SRVCPTA Parent Speaker Series March 2019 event
 sponsor the authors of The Self-Driven Child, Dr. William Stixrud, Ph.D. and Ned Johnson, for our March Parenting Speaker event! 

In their book, The Self-Driven Child, the two offer a combination of cutting-edge brain science, the latest discoveries in behavioral therapy, and case studies drawn from the thousands of kids and teens Bill and Ned have helped over the years to teach you how to set your child on the real road to success. 

As parents, we can only drive our kids so far. At some point, they will have to take the wheel and map out their own path. But there is a lot you can do before then to help them tackle the road ahead with resilience and imagination.
