Thank-you Emma, (and mom).
Please do return in a few years.
I am interested in everything about human development, fascinated by maturation, growth, emotional, educational and physical development. This exploration has been a major 30 year odyssey, an adventure that has yielded riches beyond my initial imagining.
I am certain that every reader will make unique discoveries and original observations that growing up creates. I’d love to hear what you “see.”
Permission was signed by the parents of each and every child every year, and by the participants themselves once they turned 18. In addition, we have now sent copies of all of their writings and edited photographs to the participants for whom I have finished all my editing and have received full permission from that group to publish and post.
A few kids asked that we remove a few of their written items.
So far, none of these “edits” have significantly altered their “stories.”
A few kids asked that we use pseudonyms to which we have complied.
Recently, I spent time with Steven Spierer, on his radio show, “Talk One” and discussed my Growing Up project at length. You can listen to the full interview here.
