Dr. Michael Thompson - Eight Things Parents Cannot Do For Their Children (But Wish They Could)

  • Breck School - Cargill Theater 123 Ottawa Avenue North Golden Valley, MN, 55422 United States (map)


Research shows that today’s parents spend more time with their children, are more emotionally engaged and are committed to the success of their offspring. There is only one problem: there are actually many times when parental absence is the magic ingredient for a child’s development. In this talk, Dr. Thompson discusses the eight things you cannot do for your children and why they need experiences that can nurture their curiosity and creative powers, where they can make great friends, and where they see the path to adulthood and leadership more clearly than they can with mom and dad looking over their shoulders.
