Blending his passion as a parent with his professional expertise, David Sobel created adventures tailored to his childrens' developmental stages: cultivating empathy with animals in early childhood, exploring the woods in middle childhood and devising rites of passage in adolescence. In this talk, Sobel weaves together parenting experiences, stories he told his children and developmental theory to present a model of healthy parenting in concert with the natural world. Wild Play is a hopeful response for parents, grandparents, and good friends of children who want to encourage outdoor play and place-based connections.David Sobel is Professor Emeritus in the Education Department at Antioch University New England in Keene, NH  He has authored eight books and more than 70 articles focused on children and nature for educators, parents, environmentalists and school administrators in the last 30 years.
