    The Power of Discord with Ed Tronick, PhD and Glaudia Gold, MD

    Did you know that working through the messiness in relationships is the key to connection, trust and resilience? 
    You might think that perfect harmony is the defining characteristic of healthy relationships yet the truth is that conflict and messiness are not only OK but crucial to our social and emotional development to growth and intimacy.
    We need mismatch because without it we can’t experience repair. It turned out on average 70% of the interactions were out of sync. And the repair where the action was. So the most important part was not the mismatch but the repair.

Mama from MA ,

Incredible Resource!

I just discovered Authentic Parenting and wish I had known of its existence when I first began my parenting journey almost 5 years ago. In just a short time I feel more empowered and confident in my very important role as “parent”. Within each episode I find that I am learning valuable information that I can apply to my interactions with my children or to heal my own attachment wounds. Through Anna’s interviews with amazing experts and guests and her own shared profound wisdom, this is a podcast that can surely act as a guide on you embark on the transformational journey of parenting.
