    061: Three Reasons Why You Don’t Have to Be a Perfect Parent

    In this episode, I’m sharing three reasons why you don’t have to be a perfect parent. 
     
    There is a lot of pressure when it comes to parenting. Often we feel like people are judging us for what we do, say and act with our kids. The truth is, no one is judging us as harshly as we’re judging ourselves. 
     
    Listen in to learn why you are a better parent if you don’t hold yourself to an impossible standard of perfection!


    We go into:
    [4:40] Why being a perfect parent is unrealistic  [7:45] Helping our kids develop resilience  [9:35] Why perfectionism makes us worse parents

    060: Hunt, Gather, Parent with Michaeleen Doucleff

    060: Hunt, Gather, Parent with Michaeleen Doucleff

    Mainstream parenting is W.E.I.R.D! Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, Democratic. Well, maybe not everyone. But parenting in North American culture has changed a lot in the past few hundred years and it’s a lot different currently than some other places in the world. 
     
    My guest in this podcast set out to look at how some other families around the world operate, how American parenting is different, and what we can learn from parents in other places.
     
    Michaeleen Doucleff, PhD, is the author of the New York Times bestseller Hunt, Gather, Parent. The book describes a way of raising helpful and confident children, which moms and dads have turned to for millennia. It also explains how American families can incorporate this approach into their busy lives.
     
    Doucleff is also a global health correspondent for NPR’s Science Desk, where she reports about disease outbreaks and children’s health. 
     
    We go into:
    [3:00] Why Michaeleen wrote her book and what influenced it [6:30] How the nuclear family has been a failed social experiment  [13:10] Michaeleen’s TEAM acronym  [20:00] The interesting thing about encouraging our kids to develop autonomy  [37:30] The importance of having minimal interference with our kids [45:55] Culturally specific traits when raising kids [52:00] Advice Michaeleen would give her younger parent self  
    Doucleff has a doctorate in chemistry from the University of Berkeley, California, a master’s degree in viticulture and enology from the University of California, Davis, and a bachelor’s degree in biology from Caltech.
     
    In 2015, Doucleff was part of the team that earned a George Foster Peabody award for its coverage of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Before coming to NPR in 2012, Doucleff was an editor at the journal Cell, where she wrote about the science behind pop culture. 
     
    She lives in Alpine, Texas, with her husband, daughter and German Shepherd, Savanna.

Valuable use of limited listening time!

This has become one of my go-to podcasts while folding laundry or taking a walk to help me continue my mission of being a peaceful parent. I love the variety of formats (guest interviews, coaching calls etc.) and Sarah's gentle guiding voice which ends up being a voice in my head when confronted with a hard situation with my kids. Thank you Sarah for sharing your wealth of knowledge so compassionately and accessibly.

Authentic, intelligent and relevant for all parents!

As a parenting coach with two grown kids, I have read many parenting books and listened to a myriad of podcasts. Every time I listen to Sara, I take away a golden nugget to share with my parent clients, the kids that I work with or for myself personally. As the parent to three grown children, she knows what real parents are struggling with and has the resources to offer them through her own wisdom as well as the expertise of her guests. Sara is grounded, calm and practices what she teaches!

Calming, empowering, insightful resource

Sarah’s approach to Peaceful Parenting is just what I need - in her podcasts she speaks from real experience with multiple kids, she is warm and validating while clear-eyed and direct about how to diagnose and solve issues, and is overall very accessible. I’ve read lots of peaceful parenting books and resources before but it stayed mostly in the abstract until I came across Sarah’s podcast that brings it down to earth in the nitty gritty of daily life! Thank you for sharing your insights and wisdom and compassion - it’s been so helpful to me in my parenting journey!
