Chasing Childhood virtual screening

Overprotected and over-directed, American children are wilting under the weight of well-meaning parents. In the pursuit of keeping them safe and creating an impressive resumé of extracurricular activities, over-parenting smothers children across all socioeconomic classes. Chasing Childhood follows education professionals and reformed helicopter parents who seek and offer solutions for developing more confident, independent young people while restoring some joy and freedom to childhood.

After the film, watch our exclusive Q&A with:

Dr. Michael Hynes - Superintendent of Schools, Port Washington, New York

Dr. Peter Gray - Research Professor, Department of Psychology, Boston College

Dr. Lori Koerner - Exec Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Personnel
