This week on the show Denise speaks with Tim Petri, a social worker, who believes that when kids are labeled at a young age they eventually begin to believe that label and that they believe that is who they are, forever. What do you think about labeling kids? Listen to Denise discuss this topic in relationship to prescribed drugs at young ages, behavioral problems, future addictions and problems, and what we as parents might be able to do to change the course of our children’s lives. Tim’s website Don’t Label My Kid offers lots of information, food for thought, and resources for children, young people, and adults.
