PBS Visits PEP Class in DC

Has parenting gotten “out of whack for many of us,” as Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff wondered on the PBS NewsHour last week? It’s a great question that was covered in the segment “Should kids’ happiness be the goal of parenting?” which included Woodruff talking with several parents attending the class PEP I: Parenting 5 to 12 Year Olds in Washington. Class members and the class leader, Paige Trevor, talked on camera about parenting style and the intensiveness of parenting these days.

A feature of the story was Woodruff’s discussion with Jennifer Senior, author of All Joy and No Fun, a book about the evolving pressure to raise “well-rounded” children.

Thanks to all the PEP class members who graciously consented to the filming. You can view the segment and read a transcript here.
