Building Strong Minds from Preschool to College

Thursday, October 25, 2012
7:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Princeton Montessori School

How children think is a mystery to most parents.   But how can we tell marketing from real science?  What really goes through your kid’s growing mind as an infant through adolescence?

Princeton University neuroscientist,  Professor Sam Wang will challenge popular myths and misinformation about brain development and how children think.  Professor Wang will discuss surprising revelations from neuroscience and offer practical advice backed by reliable research on a wide range of issues including; self-control, ADHD, redshirting and predictors of academic success.   Professor Wang’s lecture will help you know when to worry, how to respond, and, most importantly, when to relax.

Professor Wang’s first book, Welcome To Your Brain: Why You Lose Your Car Keys But Never Forget How To Drive, was a New York Times best-seller.  His second book is Welcome To Your Child’s Brain: How The Mind Develops From Conception To College.    Both books were co-authored with fellow neuroscientist Sandra Aamodt, Ph.D.

Professor Wang and his wife, a physician, live in Princeton, New Jersey with their daughter.
