As the pandemic continues to wreak havoc on families, and the Build Back Better plan is stalled in Congress, many parents feel alone, resourceless, and forgotten. But as Dr. Dana Suskind recently wrote in The Hill, parents have the power to become our nation’s strongest special interest group. She proposes we must make healthy brain development our North Star, the organizing principle around which our society is oriented. And we must do so by elevating our expectations for how society supports parents, the first and most important architects of children’s brains. Suskind is a world-class pediatric surgeon, social scientist, and bestselling author who has been featured in the NY Times, The Economist, Forbes, NPR, and Freakonomics.
