How do you support a tween with anxiety? How do you motivate a kid that doesn't want to do their homework? How do you help a child struggling to sleep at night? How do you help kids turn off their devices? How do you raise resilient, happy, inspired, thriving children?
As parents, we all have questions. So, we asked the experts! Not just any experts, but people at the forefront of their fields.
100 psychology and education experts have advice for parents.
We asked #1 NYT Bestselling Author Angela Duckworth how to raise gritty kids. We asked the world's expert on procrastination, Dr. Tim Pychyl, how to motivate kids. We asked actor and activist Howie Mandel about raising mentally well-adjusted kids.
And we didn't just ask... we drilled for answers and insights on a wide variety of topics such as self-regulation, coping with anxiety, motivation in school, sleeping well at night, and much more! We've conducted in-depth interviews with each of these experts and put together what we feel is the world's best library of advice on raising kids who thrive.

Meet Renee Jain
Founder and Chief Storyteller at GoZen!, NYT bestselling co-author of Superpowered, certified life coach, University of Pennsylvania MAPP graduate, resilience expert, co-host of the Dear Anxiety and Dear Anger podcasts, and mom of two.
Hi there! I’m Renee Jain.
As a kid, I used to be super anxious. It took me 10+ years and a visit to the ER for what I thought to be a heart attack in my 20s to realize that all my unprocessed feelings led my body to shut down.
Since then, I’ve studied every methodology of healing, yoga, meditation, tapping, and traditional psychology. But it wasn’t until I discovered positive psychology, the study of well-being, that I felt my purpose come to life.
My mission with GoZen! is to teach 1 million kids around the world how to become emotionally resilient. This is why we create science-backed resources and animated programs, giving kids (and their parents!) the emotional education I wish I had growing up.
So I am absolutely thrilled that you’re here!
Because, no matter what kind of support you need, knowing you’re not alone in this often challenging journey can be life-changing.
And this first step you took just moments ago is only the beginning.
With all my love and gratitude,
