In The Scaffold Effect, world-renowned child psychiatrist and founding member of the non-profit Child Mind Institute, Harold Koplewicz, introduces the powerful and clinically tested idea that the deliberate buildup and then gradual loosening of parental support (like scaffolding on a building) is the single most effective way to encourage kids to climb higher, try new things, grow from mistakes, and develop character and strength. Drawing on Dr. Koplewicz’s decades of clinical and personal experience, this book is a compassionate, street-smart, and essential guide for the ages.
