On Decision Making, COVID19, and Parenting with Professor Emily Oster Looking Up with Dr. Deepika Chopra

    • Mental Health

Three-time best-selling author, professor of Economics at Brown,  data scientist, parenting advocate, and mother- this week's guest on LOOKING UP couldn't be more relevant, it's Professor Emily Oster.

My first experience with her was through a podcast recommendation from my husband, and since then, I have been a HUGE fan of her work. Seriously, her books changed my life throughout my pregnancy, and parenting journey. I was so excited to sit down with her and talk about what this pandemic has been like for her, how making decisions affect our mental health, and to talk about her controversial article in the Atlantic.

Insightful and so down to earth, Emily shared about the biggest parenting and child development myths she discovered while writing her books (Expecting Better, Cribsheet, and the Family Firm), who and what sources she goes to for trustworthy information, how to make decisions when there are so many options available to us, what her journey from concerned parent to trusted COVID19 expert was like, and how she recommends going about writing a family mission statement. There is so much practical parenting wisdom she drops throughout our talk, I highly recommend grabbing a pen and some paper and taking some notes!
