Expose your kids to the real world. 4 ways more independence benefits them

Let your kids out into the real world.

The research has gone viral. Psychologist and author Jonathan Haidt is calling for parents to make a change. His recent book, “The Anxious Generation,” explains why our children need less tech and more real life. He says their mental health depends on it.

Psychologist Dr. Todd Corelli focuses on the overprotection. He shares how we can safely expose our kids to the “real world,” and how to strike the balance between granting independence and keeping kids protected.
