We don’t know any parents who haven’t worried, at least a little bit, about what they might or might not be doing that will screw up their kid for life. Don’t we all cringe at the thought that one day, our “babies” will grow up and sit on a therapist’s couch, listing off all the ways we failed them when they were young?
So today we’re going to tackle the topic of Parenting Screw-Ups when we stop by Magic 107.9 for our weekly Thursday morning radio chat with hosts Jennifer Irwin and Guy Westmoland. Tune in between 7:25 a.m. and 8:25 a.m. to join the discussion. Or click on the graphic below to listen to the radio live on your computer.
Today we’ll talk about worries about our own parenting mistakes, and we’ll also give you some good news: Perhaps our failed attempts at perfect parenting are actually not such a bad thing. We’ll talk about how experiencing occasional disappointment and struggle as a child help kids grow up into more resilient, happy adults.
