• December 2021
NOTE FROM TED: This talk contains a discussion of youth suicide and self-harm which represents the speaker's personal views. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf Taking away cell phones as a form of punishment may seem like a modern-day necessity, but how often do we stop to think of the unintended risks associated with this form of punishment? Through her work, school-based therapist Lindsay Ryan knows these risks all too well. Lindsay's talk challenges us to consider alternative forms of discipline, which may just save a child's life.
