Dr. Michele Borba is an educational psychologist, best-selling author of many books most notably UnSelfie, and TODAY show contributor who has spoken to over one million participants on five continents and to countless media about child development issues.

She blends 40 years of teaching and consulting experience with the latest science to offer sound, realistic advice to parents, teachers and child advocates about helping children thrive.

Dr. Borba’s latest book Thrivers is an urgently needed guide to address the staggering increase in anxiety, stress and emptiness for children from preschool to high school. She explains why the old markers of accomplishment (grades, test scores) are no longer reliable predictors of success in the 21st century – and she offers 7 teachable traits that will safeguard our kids for the future. Those essential character strengths-confidence, empathy, self-control, integrity, curiosity, perseverance, and optimism-will allow kids to roll with the punches and succeed in life.
