Parenting in the First 3 Years Podcast

How can parents effectively balance the wisdom of their own upbringing with the need to forge a distinct, individualized parenting approach that caters to their children’s unique needs and personalities?

In this episode, Amy Weber, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Parent Coach joins me as we talk about the complexities of parenting and how individuals can break away from the cycles of the way they were raised to find their own unique parenting styles. With the abundance of information available from various sources like books, family advice, and pediatricians, it can be challenging for parents to discern what’s best for their family.

Join us as we explore practical strategies and insights on how to navigate through the plethora of parenting advice and create a parenting approach that feels right for you and your children.

Topics Discussed:
  • Understanding generational influences
  • Exploring diverse perspectives
  • Embracing individuality
  • Filtering information overload
  • Nurturing self-reflection
  • Seeking community support
