Our children will come of age in a very different world from our own. Old structures are being dismantled while social media is ever more pervasive, artificial intelligence reshapes society, and climate change intensifies.  In human history, there has never been a time of such rapid change.

It’s a challenging time to be a parent.  Should we bring up our kids like our own parents brought us up? What things should we throw away from the past? What should we keep?

Hosted by Rachel Carrell, the Bringing Up Great Kids podcast explores how to help children avoid the perils and make the most of the opportunities of the new world. Each episode features an expert in thinking about how to help children thrive.
