Darien Library's Spring Author Series has Judith Warner visiting Thursday, March 4 at 7 p.m.
In her newest book, Judith Warner, "New York Times" bestselling author of 2005's Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety, returns to explore the answers to two very timely questions: Are we overdiagnosing and overmedicating our children? Are parents and physicians labeling children to "explain away" bad behavior? With five years of rigorous investigation and research of parents, psychologists, psychiatrists, and other experts, Warner brings concerns and perspectives to this controversial debate.
This event is co-sponsored by the Darien YWCA Parent Awareness Network. Refreshments will be served.
Presentation will conclude with a book signing. Books will be available for purchase.
Additional parking for evening and weekend Library programs on Thorndal Circle (behind Nielsen's).
I am always looking for good, current research about how young children use technology. There is a lot of studies that have been done on teenagers, but research with younger children is not nearly as common. I was thrilled to see that one of my favorite websites, Read Write Web is undergoing a big survey which aims to find out how children under the age of 12 use web technology. Are any of you parents out there interested in taking part? Click here to participate in the survey.
