Episode 57: The Teen Brain with Dr. Sarah Sarkis
Episode 57 The Teen Brain with Dr. Sarah Sarkis If you are like me, you read a number of books to prepare for parenting your baby. However, what I don't think I have enough information about is what I am supposed to do with those babies once they hit the teen years. In Episode 57 of The Family Brain, I talk with Hawaii based psychologist and writer, Dr. Sarah Sarkis, about all things parenting a teen. From the importance of sleep, to the necessity of separation, we cover the issues that keep parents up at night. The critical take away is that pushing boundaries is a central part of adolescence and is in fact a very healthy party of development. We might not have all or even many of the answers when it comes to parenting teenagers, but the biggest safety net is keeping the lines of communication humbly open. My favorite line of the interview: "Baked into the recipe is the friction of separation." -Dr. Sarah Sarkis Resources: Sarah Sarkis: on Instagram @drsarahsarkis or www.drsarahsarkis.com Jonathan Haidt www.righteousmind.com
Episode 56: Grown and Flown with Mary Dell Harrington: Parenting through the Teen Years
Episode 56 Grown and Flown with Mary Dell Harrington: Parenting Through the Teen Years In the kickoff episode of The Family Brain series on parenting teens, I talk with Mary Dell Harrington, coauthor of the newly released book Grown and Flown. I heard about the Grown and Flown Facebook community from my sister in law who is the parent of teens, and although I don't yet have teenagers I knew this was a community I wanted to be a part of to prep for my future parenting years. In talking with Mary Dell, my biggest take away is that parenting never ends, which can be reassuring and daunting all at the same time. While parenting doesn't ever end, the relationship shifts over time, and I talk with Mary Dell about how she discovered a need for a resource for teen and young adult parents to help them navigate that changing relationship. Hundreds of well known writers and researchers contribute to the Grown and Flown community pages, and their insights help remind us that we are not alone in the process of parenting older children. Mary Dell Harrington has found that parents were not interested in managing the empty nest but rather learning more about the evolution of parenting over time. You can purchase Grown & Flown on amazon (or listen in audible) and in bookstores starting September 3, 2019 https://www.amazon.com/shop/grownandflown You can check out the Grown and Flown website www.grownandflown.com Frances Jensen's work on teen development and her book, The Teenage Brain, A Neuroscientist's Survival Guide to Raising Adolescents and Young Adults https://www.amazon.com/s?k=the+teenage+brain+jensen&i=stripbooks&hvadid=78202821668277&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&tag=mh0b-20&ref=pd_sl_yfcypw8ti_e Frank Bruni's work on college aged kids and his book, Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be https://www.amazon.com/Where-You-Not-Who-Youll/dp/1455532681
