Born in Aspen and raised in Crested Butte, Reno/Tahoe is my base-camp for adventure and where my wife and I are "hackschooling" our two boys to be curious contrarian creative athletic wingnuts moderately prepared for a world much flatter and weirder than when we grew up. When not skiing, climbing, or riding my bike, I spend most of my time concerned with translating human behavior/development science into technology-based marketing and behavior change programs. I'm channeling this passion into Chrysallis, a new venture that wants you to be able to download the life you want to live.

comment At what age or developmental milestones is a child capable of critical thinking?
William - I guess that's the point. The question is so broad that it can't be adequately be answered within the context of a forum post. It requires at least a book - if not many more - of perspective. And there's dozens of books with many congruent and conflicting views on this question.

comment how young is too young to diagnose ADD
There's a bunch of research here. Not all great...but leads you down the rabbithole. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed evolutionarypsychiatry.blogspot.com All that being said I'm not trying to say that there aren't real cases that require prescription treatment. Just that there can be lots of factors and ways to mitigate outside of pills.
