Scout O’Donnell’s talk will explore the current trends in parenting science from both a sociological perspective and from the point of view of children.
Named after the strong-minded, independent young girl in To Kill a Mockingbird, Scout O’Donnell grew up in Vermont and Connecticut. The alternative ways in which her parents chose to raise her contradicted the ways experienced by her peers at the competitive prep school she attended in her early years. In this TEDx talk, she relates her story of maturing into the independent girl she was named after. She shares not a doctor’s perspective or that of a parent or psychologist, but her own perspective on the best way to raise a child and progress in society as a product of alternative parenting.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
