What:    The Social Life of Children: Milestones, Setbacks and Triumphs

Who:     Dr. Michael Thompson

When:   Wednesday, November 8 at 4:00 PM

Where:  The Children’s School, Stamford

Friends broaden children’s horizons, share their joys and secrets, and accompany them on their journeys into ever wider worlds. Friends can also betray and exclude. Dr. Michael Thompson will walk teachers through the magic and the heartbreak that all children experience with their friends, and discuss the motives and meanings of social behavior. He’ll share fascinating research into the differences between boy and girl groups, why cliques form, why children are sometimes scapegoated, and how teachers and schools can best protect them. Dr. Thompson is a renowned speaker and psychologist specializing in children and families, and has authored seven books on parenting, including Best Friends/Worst Friends: Understanding the Social Lives of Children.
