Lecture Series | Talking to Kids with Learning Differences to Build Motivation, Stress Tolerance, and a Peaceful Home
Dr. William Stixrud, co-author, with Ned Johnson, of the national best-seller, The Self-Driven Child, will talk about ideas from their new book, What Do You Say? Talking with Kids to Build Motivation, Stress Tolerance, and a Happy Home. The focus of his presentation will be how to communicate with kids in a way that supports the autonomy and self-drive that are so important for the healthy development of kids with learning-related challenges. Although informed by extensive research, this talk will emphasize practical communication strategies for building a strong emotional connection with our kids, communicating healthy (versus toxic) expectations, fostering intrinsic motivation, and helping struggling students find their own reasons to change. Because communication is hardest when things are not going well, the presentation will emphasize how to get “buy in” before we share our experience and advice, how to change the energy when it feels like we’re trying to force our kids, and how to manage conversations when emotions run high.
