Mother Nature’s Child – Documentary Film

Wed March 25, 6:30-8pm, Tucson Waldorf School
Admission is free
Mother Nature’s Child explores nature’s powerful role in children’s health and development. Why do children need unstructured time outside? What is the place of risk-taking in healthy child development? How is play a form of learning? What are the effects of “nature deficit disorder”? The film marks a moment in time when a living generations can still recall childhoods of free play outdoors; this will not be true for most children growing up today. This one hour film will be followed by a guided discussion.

Betty Staley | Parenting the Young Adolescent in Challenging Times

Watch the video of Betty Staley’s talk at Tucson Waldorf School, filmed January 14 as part of our Treasuring Childhood Film and Lecture Series. We had a full house of over 100 people to hear Betty’s Lecture on Parenting the Adolescent in Challenging Times, with discussion on ways in which parents and teachers can meet their youngsters to help them navigate this period in a healthy and constructive way. We are happy to share her wisdom and knowledge of development with you.
