As the world reopens, there has never been a better time for us to come together to ask ourselves: What do kids need most to thrive? Chasing Childhood examines how free play and independence have all but disappeared from kids’ lives, supplanted by relentless perfectionism and record high levels of anxiety and depression. The film spotlights experts and families who are empowering young people to explore their independence, enjoy unstructured time, and be free to thrive.
Join us to screen this award-winning film, which features experts and advocates in the area of free play including: Julie Lythcott-Haims, former Stanford Dean and author of How to Raise an Adult, Peter Gray, biological psychologist, and Lenore Skenazy, bestselling author and founder of the Free-Range Kids movement. Our special post-screening discussion will be with the film's producer Vicki Abeles and "America's Worst Mom" Lenore Skenazy.
