"The Epic Battle of Preparation vs. Protection"
How do we help keep our kids safe – physically, emotionally, and mentally – while at the same time preparing them to face the unique stages of their development? From preschool through high school, to college and beyond, each new age and stage presents opportunities to help them leverage up and cultivate resilience. The trick is managing anxieties and impulses as we learn to be the safe, yet expansive, container our kids need to grow and thrive.
