In this episode I talk with Dr. Weisinger about their approach of transforming harmful parental pressure into healthy pressure. He has just released a new book with Dr. Christopher Thurber, The Unlikely Art of Parental Pressure: A Positive Approach to Pushing Your Child to Be Their Best Self. This book provides a roadmap for parents to engage in healthy pressure with our kids, ways that will help them grow and succeed instead of stifle and crush them.
We, as parents, often struggle with kids who we think aren’t trying their hardest and we want to push harder. We know they can do more. It’s a natural instinct to push but in today’s world it seems like we can go too far and wind up doing more harm than good.
