Childhood Independence and Play: The Foundations of Democracy
Democracy relies on us having a sense of agency -- the belief that we can independently and effectively control our own lives, determine our opinions, make our decisions – to participate and contribute to society. The drastic changes to childhood in the last decades are preventing our children from developing this crucial skillset and putting America at risk. Join our discussion with Rachel Davison Humphries, Outreach Director for the Bill of Rights Institute. We'll explore why experiences of freedom and play are critical for the civic virtues of common purpose and common good, and how we can stop the trending issues of youth anxiety and apathy.
