We recently had the pleasure of hosting world-renowned author, Dr. Harold Koplewicz via Zoom to discuss his new book, THE SCAFFOLD EFFECT: Raising Resilient, Self-Reliant and Secure Kids in the Age of Anxiety. The book teaches moms and dads a strategy called scaffold parenting.
The metaphor is that the child is the "building", and the parents are the scaffold around it, the framework that guides and protects as the child rises and grows. Dr. Koplewicz discussed with the parents and grandparents how they could adopt the scaffold method to help their children in the face of challenges brought by the pandemic, and gave them useful tools to help long after it is over. Please enjoy the recorded video from our amazing Zoom with Dr. Koplewicz.
