PB&J | Start with the "Why?"

This PB&J* recording was inspired by a 1-year-old child and the question, Why do we sometimes feel a need to "help" children even when that (seeming) help might actually be harming their growth?

*PB&J is an extended conversation, generally about education and parenting, between the musician Ben Messelbeck and the educator Jesse McCarthy.
