Children these days face a myriad of social pressures. Kids come from different homes and backgrounds. They grow at different rates. They walk, talk, and act differently. This diversity and individualism can be something to embrace, but often leads to insecurities about being different and not fitting in socially. These insecurities can have detrimental effects on the mental health of kids during their formative years.
Today I am speaking with Dr. Daniel Flannery and Dr. Seth Scholer. Dr. Flannery is a professor at the Mandel school at Case Western Reserve University, Director of the Begun Center for Violence Prevention, and Professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry. Dr. Scholer is a professor of pediatrics in the division of general pediatrics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
