"As experts in educating girls, today's social media-driven culture of perfectionism can be particularly difficult for girls to navigate," said Dr. Patty Fagin, head of school at Stuart. "We are excited to bring Ana Homayoun to campus to share her expertise and solutions with students, faculty, parents, and the greater Princeton community."

For nearly two decades, Ana Homayoun's work has focused on helping teenagers and young adults develop their own blueprints for success. Her prescriptive solutions promote better executive functioning skills, effectively address the culture of teen perfectionism, and provide practical real-life advice on how to promote social media wellness in an always-on digital world.

Ms. Homayoun's latest book, Social Media Wellness: Helping Tweens and Teens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World, discusses modern social media dilemmas and offers prescriptive solutions. "Ana Homayoun has written the very book I've yearned for, a must-read for teachers and parents. I have been recommending Ana's work for years, but Social Media Wellness is her best yet; a thorough, well-researched and eloquent resource for parents and teachers seeking guidance about how to help children navigate the treacherous, ever-changing waters of social media and the digital world." said Jessica Lahey, author of New York Times bestseller The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed."

Her book, The Myth of the Perfect Girl: Helping Our Daughters Find Authentic Success and Happiness in School and Life, explores the real-life dilemmas of young women today and provides strategies for finding authentic success and happiness. Her first book, That Crumpled Paper Was Due Last Week: Helping Disorganized and Distracted Boys Succeed in School and Life, quickly became a classic among parents and educators for the pragmatic approach to executive functioning issues. Ana's work has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Atlantic Magazine, Fast Company, USA Today, San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury News, Chicago Tribune, and ABC News, among others, and she is a frequent guest on NPR.
