Event description
Join Temple Isaiah for a screening of the new film, Chasing Childhood.

About this event

Chasing Childhood is a feature length documentary that explores a phenomenon affecting kids from a broad range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Free play and independence have all but disappeared, supplanted by relentless perfectionism and record high anxiety and depression. What’s lost goes well beyond our idyllic conceptions of childhood past. When kids don’t play unsupervised by adults, they don’t gain critical life skills: grit, independence, and resourcefulness. Though they may appear more accomplished on paper, by the time they get to college they are often falling apart, lacking the emotional tools to navigate young adulthood.

The film explores how we got here and how we might empower our kids. Potential solutions are offered by the leaders of this movement, including former Stanford Dean and author of How to Raise an Adult ,Julie Lythcott-Haims, biological psychologist Peter Gray and others.

Join us at Temple Isaiah on August 18th at 6 PM for a screening and discussion of this film, featuring impact producer and filmmaker behind Race to Nowhere and Beyond Measure, Vicki Abeles.

Registration to attend this event will close on August 18, 2021.
