Undecided when it comes to God, religion and church? Where does that leave your kids?


Kathleen saved one of her most personal topics for her very last show. When she made the following post on FB, the responses flooded in and she realized she was not alone with this issue:

“As adults, many of us are still groping when it comes to God and religion and spirituality. So we do a little of this and a little of that. But I’m starting to wonder where that leaves our kids? They end up with a whole lot of nothing in particular.
The lack of dogma I can definitely live with. But the lack of ritual? Hm…(I’m personally struggling with this as a mom.)”

It took months to find just the right guest to discuss this loaded question. Dr. Michael Kaplan, Yale professor and child/adolescent psychiatrist (and father), joins Kathleen in a controversial discussion about exposing kids to religion, ritual…and inspiring them with a sense of something greater than themselves.

Practical and stirring advice.

Michael Kaplan, M.D. is Assistant Clinical Professor at the Yale Child Study Center with a special interest in bringing concepts of child development and child psychiatry to educators and parents alike. Dr. Kaplan currently teaches and trains students, residents, and fellows at Yale University Medical School as well as lectures widely on these topics. His expertise is in providing mental health consultation to public school systems and is the consulting psychiatrist to the Foote School and Choate Rosemary Hall.
