Dr Ungar has worked with young peo­ple and their fam­i­lies for 20 years.

He says that while our chil­dren are safer than at any other time in his­tory, he be­lieves there is a con­nec­tion be­tween the se­cu­rity of­fered to chil­dren and trou­bling be­hav­iours like drug abuse, early sex­ual ac­tiv­ity, vi­o­lence and tru­ancy.
