"Growth and maturation require conflict and struggle."

Nancy Close, PhD, of the Yale Child Study Center, says she repeats that principle to undergrads in her Child Development class.

In this WTIC On Demand interview, reporter Dave Mager asked Dr. Close about her observations of families as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, and her advice for parents, children and schools as they approach an uncertain school year.
