You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 175. What a joy this episode was, I got to hang out with my friend Keegan to talk about navigating respectful parenting as a dad. One thing that we have found in doing this work is that so often the folks coming to the table to have these conversations are moms and in this episode we're talking about dads and it's a pretty heteronormative conversation. I want to be really clear about that going in. We talked about the differences that Dad's face in respectful parenting in hetero relationships. I think it's really important for us to have specific conversations about certain groups of...

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 174. We talked a lot about progress over perfection, but I feel like we are still holding ourselves to a standard of perfection. That when we make mistakes, in parenthood, or as humans, we experience hard emotions that we feel like we're failing. And I think this is something that's really important for us to discuss because it's going to be huge for the kids who are watching. And if we feel like we are failing when they have a hard emotion or a tantrum or a meltdown, what message are we sending to them? So, today we're going to dive into imperfectly parenting, this is a quick episode with me...

So if you tuned into last week's episode, we re-broadcasted Sam Casey's interview about fostering a secure attachment. After that episode, we had a bunch of questions about what this looked like, to walk away from a child if they were upset or how to support a kiddo without necessarily being right next to them all the time. We had a lot of questions around constant versus secure attachment. So, Dr. Becky came to hang out with me...

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 169. In this episode I got to hang out with Courtney Berg. We dove into the topic of codependency. This is something that so many of us grew up with and frankly. I didn't even realize I had grown up with it until way down the road and I just found myself doing things like people pleasing or feeling nervous to set and hold boundaries for myself or practice self-care. I found myself nervous about what other people thought of me and really seeking others approval. As I dove into this work. I started to realize that these were markers of codependency and so much of this comes from our...

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 158. In this episode I got to hang out with Dr. Jean Chang, a psychologist out of Singapore and we are diving in to overcoming perfectionism. We break down what it really is and what it stems from and consequently, like, what do you do from there? Where do you go from there? I don't know about you, but this was something that has come up in my life a lot and something I've had to do a lot of work around. It's something we talk about on the seed team a whole bunch that we couldn't put work out into the world and support you and walk alongside you on this journey if we were waiting until...
