There was so much in this episode that I needed to hear and I hope that you all find the value in it, too!
Dr. Cara Goodwin is a child psychologist. She runs the nonprofit Instagram account called the Parenting Translator. She also has a podcast and a substack page for that where she shares research. She translates recent scientific research into information that parents can actually use. This concept is SO cool because you know that all that she is sharing is ad-free and simply her dissection of the research. Cara is doing really great work over there!
Cara is also the mom of four so she understands what it’s like implementing this research first hand with her own kids. We had a great conversation in this episode about just that – when gentle parenting and other parenting techniques simply don’t work with your kids! I loved talking about that because we all have great intentions to implement these strategies but each of our kids are unique and need something different. We also talked about how to help your anxious child, what anxiety looks like in children, school avoidance, and more!
To wrap up this episode, we talked about what a Tradwife is allllll of our thoughts on that. This term was new to me and I’m curious to hear what you all think. I know you’ll be going down a rabbit hole of researching this after hearing our conversation!
