The two authors theorize that a sense of control is the "antidote to stress," touching on common stressors for American kids such as social media, homework and lack of sleep.
The book offers a combination of "cutting-edge brain science," the latest behavioral therapy methods and case studies drawn from the thousands of children Stixrud and Johnson have guided on a "real" road to success, according to the event announcement.
The presentation is hosted by The Parent Education Series, a Sequoia Union High School District program in which experts in subjects like academic success and student wellbeing discuss their fields with district parents, staff and community members.
The event is scheduled from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in M-A's Performing Arts Center, 555 Middlefield Road in Atherton.
Admission is free; there will be light refreshments. Spanish interpretation will be available.
