Meet Dr. Sax

New York Times best-selling author Leonard Sax MD, PhD will present evidence-based tools that address today’s common parenting challenges.

Dr. Leonard Sax is a dynamic public speaker with over 30 years of experience as a practitioner, he will discuss such issues as, what one thing can parents do to greatly improve the odds that their child will grow up to be healthy, happy, and successful, how much time spent playing video games is too much time, and how do we know, at what age is it appropriate for a child to have a smartphone, and why are American kids so much more likely to be anxious or depressed compared with American kids from the same demographic just twenty years ago?

Dear Dr. Sax,

Thank you! Your day with us was so powerful. I have asked myself why it was so powerful. I think it is because you presented your points with a wonderful combination of scientific data, enriching life experience and anecdotes, and somehow rooted it all in Biblical wisdom.

This weaving of the human and divine, if you will, satisfies very deeply because it reaches the mind, heart, and soul. You included it all. We were educated, inspired, and validated, but we are not resting on our laurels. We are moved to reach higher and farther.

Thank you so much.
