Dr. Bruce Perry discusses the disconnection between what our children need to thrive and what the modern world has to offer, emphasizing the importance of human connections at early stages in life. He also offers tools for parents to help their children develop healthy minds, nurture friendships, overcome traumatic experiences, and feel cherished. Drawing from his own experience as a parent, Dr. Perry further informs parents how to evaluate themselves as friends, spouses and workers to become better role models for their children.
