Research Leadership Learning Podcast

Welcome to the Research Leadership Learning Podcast from Dowling College's Research Leadership Learning Center.

On this podcast we explore many fields of knowledge related to leadership in social agencies, bringing you conversations with teachers, principals, superintendents and others working in and around the Long Island region, including Dowling faculty and Dowling doctoral candidates. By sharing research and knowledge from the field, we hope to develop a profound human awareness among leaders of social agencies in Nassau and Suffolk Counties and beyond.

"Parents expect their [junior high school] kids to show levels of maturity they're incapable of showing."
Dr. Stan Friedland

Shownotes with related links:

Dr. Stan Friedland spent a number of years during the 1940s at the Pride of Judea Children’s Home in East New York, Brooklyn. He recounted those years in An Orphan Has Many Parents, a memoir written with fellow-orphan Phil Craft. In this interview, Dr. Friedland talks with Dr. Bob Manley, whose own mother was placed in the St. Johnland orphanage in Kings Park on Long Island.

Together they discuss effective parenting, covering a variety of topics including the importance of communication and discipline, the nuances of early adolescent brain development, and the value of having fun. They also touch on the concept of orphanages as opposed to foster care.
