We all want to raise “successful” kids but what does it really mean to be successful and how to do we help our kids to genuinely thrive? Kenneth R. Ginsburg, MD, MS Ed, FAAP, has the answers. He is a professor of pediatrics in the Division of Adolescent Medicine at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He is the medical director of health services for Covenant House in Pennsylvania, where health providers focus on stress as an underlying force that drives most health-risk behaviors.

He's a prolific author but his book, Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Your Child Roots and Wings, is one of my personal favorites. Our discussion with him about his work will forever change the way you think about the way you parent.
