We're Better Together: Alyson Schafer at TEDxStouffville

UNICEF recently reported that Canadian children rank in the bottom half of 29 developed countries studied on a measure of well-being. “Canada the friendly” has seemingly lost its way and our children are the canaries in the coal mine, paying the price for our increasingly disconnected communities and our apparent loss of common sense. Alyson puts us back in touch with some universal truths about what children need from their families, schools and communities. She makes an impassioned plea for a simple solution that is free, available to all and curative: the power of relationship.

BIO: For 20 years, Alyson has been educating and inspiring parents. She advocates for children by challenging the established cannons of child-rearing. As a psychotherapist and best-selling author of three parenting books, Alyson has established herself as the go-to person for news and media on family issues. You can find her as a regular contributor on CTV NewsChannel, CBC’s The World This Week, The Marilyn Denis Show and as a columnist for Today’s Parents Magazine. She translates theory and research into practical advice that become the uncommon “common sense” we are all looking for.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
