DFTB, T. Liz Crowe: Are we destroying children’s resilience?, Don't Forget the Bubbles, 2017. Available at:
This talk was recorded live on the first day at DFTB17 in Brisbane.
Liz Crowe is many things – a paediatric social worker, a PhD student, renowned presenter -but first and foremost she is a mother. In this talk she introduces us to the concept of resilience and asks us to take a really hard look at how we treat children. Are we wrapping them up in cotton wool, hiding them away from some of life’s harsh realities?
You can listen to this talk as you walk to work on any device that supports podcasts.
