“…we occasionally need our children to actually fail and integrate that learning, especially when we’re available to scaffold the experience and build them up again with the skill set they need to overcome the problem. So what we’re really getting at from a family point of view also is integrating learning, helping children develop the skills  that they need to cope with future stressors so that we can address the fact that what we’re seeing is this huge spike in anxiety disorders and depression amongst our children.”
