Chasing Childhood Poster

As we enter post-pandemic life, there has never been a better moment to bring our communities back together to collectively reimagine a healthier future for our kids. That’s why we’re joining forces with the team behind Chasing Childhood, a new documentary that urges us to rethink what children and teens really need to be well, healthy, and joyful.

Chasing Childhood explores how free play and independence have virtually disappeared from our kids’ lives, while stress, anxiety, and depression have skyrocketed. This film spotlights the experts and families who are empowering young people to explore their independence, enjoy unstructured time, and be free to thrive.

We invite you to take part in our national screening tour of Chasing Childhood. Contact us today and we’ll provide everything you need to watch the film and share it with your community. 


Directed by Margaret Munzer Loeb and Eden Wurmfeld, Chasing Childhood features these thought leaders who are fighting to bring back the benefits of a less curated childhood:

Julie Lythcott-Haims, former Stanford Dean and author of Your Turn: How to Be an Adult and How to Raise an Adult

Peter Gray, biological psychologist and author of Free to Learn

Lenore Skenazy, founder of Let Grow and the Free Range Kids movement

Dr. Michael Hynes, public school advocate and superintendent of Port Washington Union Free School District

Sign up to host a screening of Chasing Childhood and we’ll send you tools and resources to spark conversations in your community that couldn’t be more important today. Together, let’s make 2021 the year we change the landscape of childhood!
