Learn to Unleash Your Child’s Potential April 24
Apr 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
On Thursday, April 24 at 7pm, join us for an engaging evening with William Stixrud, PhD and Ned Johnson to discuss their book, The Self Driven Child: The Science and Sense of Giving Your Kids More Control Over Their Lives. 

In this talk, our guest speakers will explain a crucial link between the twin scourges of high stress and low motivation, namely a low sense of control or autonomy. They will present practical, eye-opening approaches for supporting the development of autonomy and raising healthy, successful children.

This much-loved event is coming up on Sunday, May 6! The River School’s RiverWalk and the Spring Picnic bring together current and alumni families, as well as friends and new families. It takes place at Carderock Rock Pavillion in the Carderock Rock Recreation Area.

RiverWalk is named in memory of River teacher Jill Bailey Chenet. RiverWalk proceeds go to The Jill Bailey Chenet Scholarship Fund, which supports “Tootie Time” tutoring at The River School, a program to help children succeed in school and become life-long readers.
