In an evening sponsored by the SHMS Parents' Guild, Leonard Sax MD PhD will present evidence that America children are more fragile, and more likely to become anxious and/or depressed and/or disengaged, compared with American kids from the same demographics just ten years ago - and what to do about it.
Topics will include:
Evidence-based guidelines for best practices in parenting
How best to respond when your child experiences disappointment
Why so many American kids are now anxious or depressed or disengaged, and what you can do to improve the odds for your child
