"Just as we had to learn algebra to get better and understand calculus when we reach college, we also have to learn to manage our emotions during our childhood so that we can efficiently make use of those emotions when we enter adulthood".
On this week's episode, Zain and Avanti are joined by child and adolescent therapist, Gitanjali Palekar to talk about mental health in kids from toddlers to preteens. Gitanjali explains how parents need to recognize the 'state of agency' (I am an individual I have my own thoughts, feelings & capacity to have opinions) with their child and not disregard their agency because of a social construct that has been pre-established in society.
