Directed by Margaret Munzer Loeb and Eden Wurmfeld
Overprotected and over directed, American children are wilting under the weight of well-meaning parents. In the pursuit of keeping them safe and creating an impressive resumé of extracurricular activities to wow admissions boards, over-parenting smothers children across socioeconomic classes. This thoughtful film follows education professionals and reformed helicopter parents who seek and offer solutions for developing more confident, independent young people while restoring some joy and freedom to childhood. The local Long Island Patchogue School District is showcased in the film, as school Superintendent, Michael Hynes struggles to add recess, meditation, and longer a lunch period in the schools!
Running Time: 80 Minutes
Guest Speakers recorded via Zoom: Margaret Munzer Loeb, Co-Director and Dr. Michael Hynes, Superintendent of Port Washington School District, moderated by Tom Needham, Host of The Sounds of Film at WUSB radio.
Tickets $10 (Limited seating, so purchase tickets early!)
Advance Sale at: portjeffdocumentaryseries.com/ticketsvenues or at the screening as available.
