"Raising Sturdy Kids" presented by Dr. Keith McCurdy.

Years ago parents raised their children to have good character and be good citizens within the community. Now there has been a shift so that the general goal of child rearing is “happy children.” Dr. Keith McCurdy is a Christian child psychologist, who has noted this shift. He calls parents to invest in the sturdiness of their children, which will ultimately lead to their happiness. He also touches on maturity, anxiety in children, expectations and responsibility, setting healthy boundaries, and cultivating children who do not shy away from the challenges of life.
