Every parent can appreciate how challenging it is to raise a child in society today. We all find ourselves asking what do we need to do see our kids develop into successful and resilient adults.

The answer might become clearer as a result of a new national study looking at how the experiences kids have interact with each other and with their changing bodies.

On this edition of UWM Today, we meet Krista Lisdahl, an associate professor of psychology, who is part of the largest long-term study of brain development and child health in the United States.
