We have two amazing guests on the show today. Dr. William Stixrud is clinical neuropsychologist and director of The Stixrud Group. He holds positions at children’s medical schools. He lectures on neuropsychological assessment, learning and executive disorders, brain development, motivation, and the effects of stress, sleep deprivation, and technology overload on the brain. Ned Johnson is a friend of Tricia's, and the president and founder of PrepMatters where he helps students of all ages prep for all types of academic tests. He is considered the most sought out instructor in the DC area. He also oversees instructor hiring and training, curriculum development, business management, and coffee purchases. We are so fortunate to have these two experts on complementary subjects here to talk about their new book that they collaborated on. We talk about why stress is so prevalent today, and what parents can encourage their children to do to become autonomous and learn decision making, and find the confidence to succeed. This book is a must read for everyone.
