How do your children develop and why do they behave the way they do? We got some answers at the KMT Child Development and Community Conference. Physician and author, Gabor Maté, links parental stress to ADHD and other childhood problems. Developmental psychologist and author, Gordon Neufeld, emphasizes attachment and the danger of letting your kids become too peer-focused.
