While parent-child bonding is obviously crucial early on, the ability to interact with peers is perhaps the greatest skill a young person can learn in the years following kindergarten. This program delves into the complex, rapidly evolving social lives of a group of 7-year-olds who have been part of a longitudinal study conducted since they were born. Does Anastasia have all the fun and the advantages by being an extrovert, or is there a downside to her intensity? Is quintuplet Ben really shy, or just introverted? If so, what’s the difference? And despite the hardships in his life, what role will Wyatt’s empathy play in his future? The significance of traditional male and female roles in social groups is also explored as viewers revisit Shine, whose parents challenge gender stereotypes.
