We want to be great parents. We want to produce healthy, happy children. We want out children to be athletically and academically skilled. We want our children to be socially accepted. It turns out there are many times when parental absence is the magic ingredient for a child and especially fro a teenager.
In his talk, Dr. Thompson will explain how the greatest maturation in childhood occurs when children are away from their parents. It will describe the experiences, excitement, fears and growth of situations away from home, especially in summer camps, that instill confidence and independence.
In May Dr. Thompson released his newest book, Homesick and Happy, which details how time spent away from parents and specifically time spent at summer camps is a developmentally critical step for building confidence, independence, and maturity. Dr. Thompson will speak about his research on summer camps and the important role that he believes summer camps play in raising happy and successful young people. We would like to invite our camp families in Austin, Dallas, and Houston to attend and to bring friends who may be interested in learning about how their kids may benefit from attending summer camp!
