Join Jfamily and Detroit Jewish Book Fair, along with moderator Franki Bagdade, for a thoughtful discussion using a practical, compassionate guide to helping children develop independence and a strong identity.

In The Scaf­fold Effect, world-renowned child psy­chi­a­trist and found­ing mem­ber of the non-prof­it Child Mind Insti­tute, Harold Koplewicz, intro­duces the pow­er­ful and clin­i­cal­ly test­ed idea that the delib­er­ate buildup and then grad­ual loos­en­ing of parental sup­port (like scaf­fold­ing on a build­ing) is the sin­gle most effec­tive way to encour­age kids to climb high­er, try new things, grow from mis­takes, and devel­op char­ac­ter and strength.
