Buy now to get key insights from Summary of Ned Johnson and William Stixrud's The Self-Driven Child

Sample insights:

  1. Between 1960 and 2002, students have shown a decreased belief in controlling their own destiny and an increased belief in external forces controlling their destiny. This is associated with an increase in depression and anxiety levels. Students thus feel powerless and become passive, adopting a defeatist attitude. 
  2. Many people have false assumptions when it comes to success, such as the belief that children must be competitive all the time to achieve success, or that it is critical to be successful in school in order to succeed later in life.
