Dr. Dan interviews bestselling author and TODAY show contributor Michele Borba, Ed. D. to discuss her new book THRIVERS: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine.
Michele Borba, Ed. D., is the bestselling author of UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About Me World, and is an internationally renowned educational psychologist and an expert in parenting, bullying, and character development who has spoken to over one million participants on five continents. She is a regular NBC contributor who appears regularly on Today and has been featured as an expert on Dateline, The View, Dr. Phil, NBC Nightly News, Fox & Friends, Dr. Oz, and The Early Show, among many others.
As a teacher, educational consultant, and parent for 40 years, Dr. Borba has never been more worried for young people than she is about this current generation of kids. THRIVERS helps parents and educators teach the essential character strengths kids need to become “thrivers”– young people who flourish in a rapidly changing, digitally- driven, and uncertain world. Dr. Borba discovered seven essential character strengths that set Thrivers apart (and set them up for happiness and greater accomplishment later in life): Self-confidence, Empathy, Self-control, Integrity, Curiosity, Perseverance, and Optimism.
Dr. Borba ends the interview with her incredible and powerful Parent Footprint Moment which will stay with listeners for a long time.
Michele Borba lives in Palm Springs, California, with her husband, and she is the mother of three grown sons. For more information visit: www.MicheleBorba.com
