Raising emotionally healthy kids is no easy task and according to Dr. Leonard Sax, it’s infinitely more difficult for American parents compared to parents in Western Europe. In part 2 of my interview with psychologist, physician, and author, Dr. Leonard Sax we discover:
•Why American kids are exponentially more likely to be diagnosed with a mental illness than kids in Western Europe.
•The brain damage that occurs from ADHD medications.
•Sleep deprivation and how it affects kids’ cognition and motivation.
•Why adult ADHD recently became a “thing” and why it’s not a legitimate diagnosis.
•How boys and girls interact with social media differently and the impact on their emotional development.
Dr. Sax provides research-based strategies for raising happy and successful kids in the midst of the collapse of American parenting.
