Modern day parents benefit from having an abundance of research to guide healthy parenting practices. However, we also suffer from information overload, as well as living in an Instagram fantasy that pressures us to feel like we need to be “perfect” parents (and have perfectly behaved children) in order to be adequate. The “positive parenting” movement guides parents to approach their children (and themselves!) with kindness, respect, empathy, and intention. But many parents struggle to find the line between embracing this philosophy and feeling bad about themselves for “not living up”. In this talk, licensed psychologist and parent coach Dr. Caroline Segal will demystify the spirit of positive parenting, guide you to identify and practice your own personal parenting values, and provide you with practical skills to promote connection and growth in both your child and yourself.
