Thanks so much for coming to check out Episode 4 of The New Family Podcast!
This episode I chat with Dr. Shimi Kang, a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and best-selling author of “The Dolphin Parent: A Parent’s Guide to Raising Healthy, Happy and Motivated Kids.”

Now back to what this interview is all about. Dr. Kang suggests ways to resist our generation’s helicopter-parenting ways by considering the life skills and attributes that will REALLY make a difference to how our kids fare in life. (Hint: It’s not about getting the top mark in science class or a place on a rep hockey team.) Dr. Kang also shares the “ah ha” moment that led her to make changes to her own parenting style.
Here are some great resources related to my discussion with Dr. Kang.
