Day Three

Dr. Dan Siegel

Dr. Joseph Lee

Decreasing Anxiety by Being a “Good Enough” Parent

Joseph Lee is a psychiatrist with a practice in Southern California. Early in his practice he saw that his patients were clearly getting better, but didn’t seem to be quite “well.” His search to help people truly thrive, led him to a truth-based perspective that he’s been applying personally and professionally, built around developing self-worth, meaningful relationships, and lifelong optimal healthiness. Becoming a parent, made him more intentional about every aspect of his own life – trying to figure out the best way to raise his kids, while maintaining his own health and wellbeing.

Summary:
Dr. Joseph Lee explains, whether you are an adult or a child, why some anxiety is a good thing, but too much has detrimental effects. When you are feeling anxious, what can you do? Part of the solution is having courage. Being courageous means that you still have fear and anxiety but you choose to act anyway. Dr. Lee assures us that kids don’t need perfect parents, far from it! “Good enough parenting” actually is, according to the research, good enough!

Day Four

Dr. Dan Siegel

Lenore Skenazy

Free Range Kids in a High Tech Age

Lenore Skenazy is a blogger, columnist, and author. She got massive media attention and was dubbed, “America’s Worst Mom” when she let her then-9-year-old son take the New York City Subway home alone. In response, Lenore founded the book, blog, and movement “Free-Range Kids” and a new non-profit organization “Let Grow”, with the aim of “fighting the belief that our children are in constant danger from creeps, kidnapping, germs, grades, flashers, frustration, failure, baby snatchers, bugs, bullies, men, sleepovers and the perils of a non-organic grape.”

Summary:
In this hilarious conversation, Lenore Skenazy explains why kids growing up today in the US (and many other English speaking countries) have very little freedom in comparison to their parents, even though crime is at a record low. Computers and phones give parents the ability to monitor children (their location, their vital signs, their grades, etc) in unprecedented ways, however these technological advances might impact our relationship with our kids, slow their development, and actually not keep kids any safer or help us parents be any calmer! Lenore talks about how the Let Grow non-profit program is changing schools and communities at no cost, and making it easy, normal and legal to give kids freedom.
