very smart - Hara Estroff Marano on over-invested parents and brittle kids

Hara Estroff Marano is the Editor-at-Large of Psychology Today in the US, and in this fantastic interview talks with Australian broadcaster Richard Fidler.
 Lots of great stuff talked about - letting kids have a childhood is now a revolutionary idea.
She talks about the importance of play, contemporary interest in learning, helicopter parenting and children building resilience through bumps and bruises, scrapes, mistakes and failure.
She's pretty awesome!
