Drawing on what psychology, sociology, and neuroscience have shown about success and fulfillment—and using her own chaotic and often hilarious real-world experiences as the mother of four teens to demonstrate do’s and don’ts in action—Christine Carter, PhD, gives parents practical tips for nurturing both achievement and happiness in teenagers today. She’ll discuss how and why smartphones and social media are undermining our kids’ success and happiness, and she’ll give us simple, science-based strategies for helping kids fulfill their potential in an age of distraction.
