Raising Fearless Children in a Culture of Fear

Presented by Melissa Youssi.

How do counterculture parents teach love over the din of the mainstream dominance of fear? How can we feed the natural optimism of children to grow positive change? What can we do to break inertia spawned by media fictions and overstatements? This is a brainstorming challenge for parents, caregivers and anyone who loves kids and cares about how the next generation will carry on our legacy of critical thinking and stewardship for the earth and her creatures. Topics will include issues of health, safety, activism and how the media shapes perceptions of risk and youth in America.
