In Part 2 of this two part series, we continue our conversation with Dr. William Stixrud and Ned Johnson, authors of parenting books The Self Driven Child and What Do You Say?  We talk with Bill and Ned about the importance of giving our kids autonomy,  helping them learn how to manage technology (the dreaded phones and videogames) and the importance of a good night’s SLEEP.  And we talk about the all-important pursuit of happiness.  Bill and Ned set us straight by reminding us that by the time they graduate from high school, most kids have already spent 90% of the time they will ever spend with us.
