This article is adapted from a post that previously appeared on www.quietrev.com.

In my 2012 TED Talk, I told the story of going off to summer camp for the first time at age nine. My mother had packed my bag full of books. Reading was our primary group activity—and I liked it that way. It gave us the animal warmth of sitting cozily with the family, and the freedom to roam around the adventure-land inside our own minds.

by WENDY MOGEL, Clinical Psychologist and Writer (Review 2016)

I’ve been in practice for 35 years. In the old days, most parents of lower school boys came to see me at the recommendation of the school. The student was behind in reading and writing, or restless, devilish, or puzzlingly out-of-sorts. Today, most parents of young boys are self-referred. The most common presenting problem? Their sons’ worrisome worries. These anguished parents use such similar phrases that I feel like I’m listening to actors reading sides for a casting agent.
