Childs World PRESENTS invites you to a free screening & discussion of The Raising of America. This documentary is aimed to spark a conversation about improving the lives of children and American families.
ABOUT THE FILM:
The Raising of America: Episode 1: The Signature Hour (58 min)
The Signature Hour interweaves discoveries from neuroscience with the stories of families and communities struggling to provide the nurturing environments all babies and young children need to thrive—while too often hindered by social conditions that put their children on low developmental paths. It reveals how stressors on parents can drip down on their infants and young children, literally altering the wiring of their developing brains with enduring effects. Why are so many children faring so poorly in the richest nation on the planet? How might we do better?
The film will be followed by discussion. The event is free but a $10 donation is requested.
