Dr. Robin Berman spoke at our May Psych Media Group about the challenges and opportunities of modern day parenting especially in context of the recent article in The Atlantic entitled ‘Parents are Sacrificing their Social Lives on the Altar of Intensive Parenting.’

Dr. Josephine McNary moderated the conversation, which was punctuated with clinical vignettes and tips from Dr. Berman’s book, “Permission to Parent.” Dr. Berman discussed how many working parents have carried their professional expectations into the parenting realm, sometimes constraining the freedom necessary for children to develop self-esteem. She recommended parents help their children gain confidence by facing their fears, and parents should be mindful about projecting their own anxieties onto their children.
