Being a parent in the era of social media means wading through a morass of conflicting and half-baked advice from would-be influencers, coaches, and practitioners.
* It’s confusing. “Wait, attachment parenting has nothing to do with attachment?”
* It’s overwhelming. “I want to be sensitive to my child’s needs, but how sensitive?”
* It’s contradictory. “Don’t be a tiger/helicopter/lawn mower parent, but also be an involved parent and help them lean into their potential.”
It’s enough to make any try-hard parent confused, frustrated, and exhausted.
Well, not to worry, relief is here. In today’s episode of The Change Lab, Sasha is joined by the wise and delightfully human host of the Raising Good Humans Podcast, Dr. Aliza Pressman. Aliza will cut through all the parenting nonsense to distill the five principles of parenting that are based on decades of research. And, here’s the great news, being a good parent of good humans is not as complicated as you may have been led to believe. With her warmth and wisdom, Aliza will bring you the relief you have been looking for. So, even if you’re a parent or not, make sure to tune into this one!
