Parenting is one of the hardest job in the world and yet, we do not have much training, support, or preparation in this area. As a Family Doctor, it’s not surprising to see so many parents presenting with stress, when it comes down to managing their relationship and boundary setting with their children.
In this talk to Doctors and Medical Students, I wanted to highlight the following.
1. How parenting skill training for parents can help or prevent mood disorders.
2. How to assess children with behavioral concerns. The framework we use is the WHAT, WHY, and HOW to improve.
3. What are the basic principles of parenting with a focus on connection and boundary setting.
4. What are the common pitfalls around parenting namely accidental rewards and the escalation trap, and how to address those.
