Is the foundation for successful children and adults really laid between the ages of two and five? If so, what can parents do to build resilience, self-reliance, self-regulation, and empathy in their child? In honor of the 
40th anniversary of the Barnard Center for Toddler Development, director Tovah Klein reflects on her firsthand work with thousands of toddlers and explains how to crack the toddler code to build these skills through daily routines and interactions. Dr. Klein’s new book is How Toddlers Thrive. She conducts research on children’s development, parents’ experience parenting young children, and the challenges of work and family. A book signing will follow the talk.

Read a Q&A with Prof. Klein discussing her new book, How Toddlers Thrive.
