Children are wired to resist coercion, especially when most of our interactions are about making a request or demand. In this episode, I answer a parent's question about how to handle her 12 year old son who accuses her of being grumpy whenever she asks him to turn off the TV to do his chores or homework. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-stiffelman-hooked-on-tv/
Susan talks with Dr. William Stixrud, author of The Self-Driven Child, about the rise of anxiety and depression in kids who report feeling increasingly controlled and micromanaged by well-meaning parents. Kids need a sense of agency to grow into resilient adults. An important, thought-provoking conversation. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-stixrud/

Susan talks with Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of How to Raise an Adult, about raising children who grow into confident, capable, resilient adults. Many parents feel they should do all they can to help their kids get good grades. But are we shortchanging our children when we do? https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-lythcott-haims/
High sensitivity is a trait shared by 20% of the population, serving a vital function in the survival of the species. Susan speaks about the joys and challenges of heightened sensitivity with Alane Freund, colleague of Dr. Elaine Aron who wrote The Highly Sensitive Person and The Highly Sensitive Child, in anticipation of a Master Class they will be teaching with Dr. Aron. A fascinating look at the gifts of deep feeling and creativity, as well as the challenges of overstimulation that come with this trait.https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-freund/
Susan talks with psychiatrist Dr. Dan Siegel about attachment, including a discussion about the number one predictor of how children will become attached to a parent. Susan and Dan also talk about the importance of understanding that there is no such thing as perfect parenting--and how to make relationship repairs when we've temporarily lost our way as parents. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-siegel/
It's easy to lose our parenting cool when we think our kids are deliberately pushing our buttons. But what if we could stop taking our child's frustrating behaviors personally? In this episode, family therapist Susan Stiffelman offers a different way of looking at difficult behaviors that will make it easier to stay calm through those parenting storms. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-stiffelman-1-8/
As parents, it's easy to make our children's needs front and center, forgetting that we also need support. Susan talks with Debbie Reber from Tilt Parenting about the importance of finding our tribe, and knowing we can lean on others when we're overwhelmed or just having a hard day. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-reber
Susan talks with Dr. Kristin Neff, author of Self-Compassion about the importance of treating ourselves with kindness and care. You'll learn how to soothe yourself when you're overwhelmed and how to manage those mean voices in your head that fuel shame and regret. A powerful interview that will help you move through the world a little gentler with yourself. https://susanstiffelman.com/podcast-episode-neff/
