Burlingame PTA Council presents Dr. Kelly McGonigal "Why Willpower Matters and How to Get More of it!"
Does your child or teen ever procrastinate or delay studying for a test?  Have you ever avoided a difficult conversation or task at the last minute?  Do you wish you could improve your child's ability to delay gratification?

If you answered YES to any of these, join us to hear nationally acclaimed expert, Kelly McGonigal as she shares wisdom from her latest book. Health psychologist and Stanford University lecturer, Dr. McGonigal understands willpower and helps families improve habits, cure procrastination, find focus and manage stress. She shares valuable strategies or "willpower boosts" to enable parents to conquer common self-discipline challenges and establish an effective model for improving self-control in our children. Her most recent book: "The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do to Get More of It" will be available for sale at the event courtesy of Books, Inc.

Dr. McGonigal is passionate about translating cutting-edge research from psychology, neuroscience, and medicine into practical strategies for health, happiness, and personal success. Her work has been covered widely by the media, including the CBS Evening News, U.S. News and World Report, CNN.com, O! The Oprah Magazine, Time magazine and USA Today.

This presentation is designed for parents and educators of children from preschool through high school. Parents are welcome to bring their children for a informative night together.  Please note that content is suitable for students 10 and over.
