Our kids suffer more stress and anxiety today than children did a century ago. Clinical neuropsychologist Dr. Bill Stixrud and testing guru Ned Johnson explain why and what we can do about it in their new work The Self-Driven Child: The Science and Sense of Giving Your Kids More Control Over Their Lives. Whether your child makes herself sick getting straight A’s or has mastered the art of procrastination, whether she’s just starting preschool or waiting for the college acceptance letters, our guests have an important message for us all about our true role as parents. x Ellie Knaus
