The Purcell Public Library will host bestselling author and expert in child development, Dr. Michele Borba from 1-2 p.m. Thursday, September 8.

Dr. Borba will discuss her book, “Thrivers: Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Thrive”

Data shows today’s youth are the loneliest, most stressed, and risk-averse on record. Though well-educated, they are failing to launch in real life. So how can we teach them to be mentally strong and more successful?

Dr. Borba empowers educators and parents to help kids thrive in today’s fast-paced, digital-driven, often uncertain world. Through her research, she found the difference between those who struggle and those who succeed comes down to the personal traits that set Thrivers apart and set them up for happiness and a greater potential later in life.

She offers practical, actionable ways to develop these Thrivers traits for kids and shows you how to teach them to cope today so that they can flourish tomorrow in school and life. These are lessons that will last a lifetime.
