Childhood has come to resemble a race to perfection. Result: children and parents are frazzled and unfulfilled. But change is coming. A global movement (think Slow Education, Slow Families, Slow Parenting, Slow Kids, etc) is finding ways to give children the time and space to explore the world on their own terms, take reasonable risks, play freely, get bored, be children again. In this keynote, Carl explores this powerful drive to reinvent childhood for the 21st century, touching on themes ranging from technology and extracurricular activities to education, safety and consumerism. He shows how to strike the right balance between doing too much and doing too little for children, and how slowing down can help them reach their full potential (as well as making family life a lot more fun!).
