About this never-before-seen episode:

The U.S. is a can-do nation. So why is child well-being in the U.S. so  much worse than in other rich countries? How does what Paul Kershaw calls “the growing squeeze” on so many young families and caregivers– the squeeze for time, for money and for resources — “drip down” on their infants and young children, literally altering the wiring of their developing brains with potential long-term consequences for learning, earning, and mental and physical health? How might we do better?

 This hour-long episode interweaves the latest discoveries from neuroscience with the stories of families and communities struggling to provide the nurturing environments all babies and young children need to survive — while too often hindered by social conditions that put their children on low developmental trajectories.
