Resilience

Stranger Says:

When you were a kid, did your parents fight? Did you move a lot? Did your parents hit you? Did they hit each other? It's taken science a long time to catch up, but doctors have recently discovered that the answers to questions like these play an enormous role in a person's risk for disease later in life—or even early death. The more kids are subjected to toxic stress, life events that constantly trigger their fight or flight responses, the more that toxic stress will directly impact the structure of a child's growing brain. Our culture spends billions of dollars a year treating addiction and cardiovascular disease, but what would happen if we shifted to focus on preventing it in the first place by making sure our kids feel safe? This documentary explores that question, and it's one we should all be asking. (SYDNEY BROWNSTONE)
