What to Say to Boost Motivation and Build Stress Tolerance in Kids
Critical Topics in Parenting
This is the fourth webinar in this year’s free series, Critical Topics in Parenting, designed to address the most pressing issues facing families and children today.
The strategies and insights shared come from Stixrud and Johnson's work with children in elementary school through college.
- The common things parents say to children that deflate motivation - and what to say instead
- Ways to help kids develop high-stress tolerance and strong coping skills
- Helping kids find their own reasons to change when they’re struggling.
Moderated by PEP Parent Educator and Board President Pascale Brady.
Your enrollment includes access to video recording, an audio version that you can listen to podcast style, and handouts.
William Stixrud is a practicing neuropsychologist and a practicing faculty member at Children's National Medical Center and George Washington University Medical School.
Ned Johnson is the founder of Prep Matters, a tutoring service in Washington, DC, and the co-author of Conquering the SAT: How Parents Can Help Teens Overcome the Pressure and Succeed.
The Critical Topics in Parenting series is made possible thanks to these sponsors:
"... approaching this subject was a great balance of both concern and lightness, the instructor also brought a realistic approach to the topic, (i.e., yes, we're going to have meltdowns and, we're working to reduce them.)"
