Kate Silverton: Parenting, emotional regulation, and screen time
Listen now
Did you learn to regulate your emotions as a child? Broadcaster turned child therapist Kate Silverton says our ability to regulate our emotions has been found to be the best indicator of future happiness.   In this chat with Fearne, Kate definitively explains why it’s never too late to change your relationship with your kids regardless of how much you think you’ve already messed up. Kate talks through why it’s not about changing our children, it’s about changing their environment. Similarly, it’s not that you’re bad at parenting, it’s that you’re being expected to parent while under often more stress and with less community support.   Fearne and Kate also chat about why all of these conversations are relevant even if you’re not a parent, because all these things – soothing anxiety, acknowledging emotions, cultivating resilience – also relate to our relationships with our own parents, and ourselves...   Plus, Kate gives her take on how best to help children with neurodiversity, and how screens are really affecting our brains.   Kate’s book, There’s Still No Such Thing As Naughty, is out on the March 28th.    Hosted on Acast.
