Dr. Michele Borba
Internationally renowned educational psychologist, best-selling author, and expert in parenting, bullying, and character development
Dr. Borba's latest book, Thrivers, is an urgently needed guide to address the staggering increase in anxiety, stress and emptiness for children from preschool to high school.  She explains why the old markers of accomplishment (grades, test scores) are no longer reliable predictors of success in the 21st century – and offers 7 teachable traits that will safeguard our kids for the future. Those essential character strengths-confidence, empathy, self-control, integrity, curiosity, perseverance, and optimism-will allow kids to roll with the punches and succeed in life.
