The rat race to “keep up with the Joneses” starting in the 1950s was about “things,” i.e., homes, cars, appliances. The “gerbil” race today is about children: getting your kids in the “right” school, on the “right” select sports teams, building the perfect resume. Kids are growing up too fast, being treated as adults, and are stressed out and overextended. Dr. Jordan will lay out the costs to kids and families due to these extraordinary pressures and he will inspire parents to take control of their families’ lives, parenting from the principles and values important to them.

A nationally known speaker and educator, Tim Jordan, M.D., has dedicated his career to helping children and families. As a key media consultant, he has appeared on national and local television and radio and hosted the weekly radio show “Families First.”
