Overprotected and over directed, North American children are wilting under the weight of well-meaning but misguided parents who want to schedule every moment. In the pursuit of keeping their young ones safe and creating an impressive resumé of extracurricular activities to wow admissions boards, helicopter parents smother children across socioeconomic classes, unwittingly creating anxiety and depression.

Deftly directed by Margaret Munzer Loeb and Eden Wurmfeld, CHASING CHILDHOOD follows education professionals and reformed helicopter parents who seek to offer solutions for developing more confident, independent young people while restoring joy, play, and freedom to childhood.
