Raising Kind Kids
In today's culture, kindness is starting to feel like an endangered species. Hate-based incidents in schools have been on the rise, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, and bullying in many school districts has increased since 2015. But, journalist Melinda Wenner Moyer argues, it doesn't have to be this way. Moyer has interviewed dozens of child psychologists and sociologists to understand the most effective ways for parents to push against the rising tide of hate and foster generosity, honesty, kindness, and compassion in today's youth. In her lecture, she'll discuss the importance of building emotional literacy, provide evidence-based ways to talk to kids about race and gender, and offer surprising insights on self-esteem, bullying, and narcissism. In Moyer's view, we as parents have infinite opportunities to teach our kids values, and the more we take advantage of them, the more confident we can be that our children will grow into the kinds of people we want them to be--the kinds of people the world right now really needs.

Melinda Wenner Moyer is a science and parenting journalist and a visiting scholar at NYU's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. She writes Slate's parenting column, The Kids, and is a contributing editor at Scientific American magazine. She also writes for the New York Times, the Washington Post, Mother Jones, Real Simple, and O: The Oprah magazine.

Moyer is the recipient of the 2019 Bricker Award for Science Writing in Medicine. Her work has received first place awards in the American Society of Journalists and Authors' Annual Writing Awards and the Awards for Excellence in Health Care Reporting. Her pieces have also been finalists for National Magazine Awards and National Academy of Sciences Communications Awards. She lives in New York's Hudson Valley and has two kids.
