About Kathy and Wendy

Wendy Grolnick PhD is professor of psychology at Clark University in Worcester, Mass. Kathy Seal is a journalist and author who lives in Santa Monica, Ca.  Together they have written Pressured Parents, Stressed-out Kids: Dealing With Competition While Raising a Successful Child, which explains that parental anxiety is peaking today because of the hypercompetition in our children’s world.  Instead of criticizing parents, we show them how to relieve that pressure, by staying highly involved with their childrenm, while encouraging their autonomy. That it turn will allow the child’s intrinsic motivation to flourish, leading to high achievement.
