Using dignity as a framework to navigate conflict and analyze behavior requires a radical shift in thinking. Here’s how we start.
No parent can manage their lives perfectly. It wasn’t possible before covid-19 — despite our curated social media posts to the contrary — and it’s not possible now. Trying to be the perfect parent has always distracted us from being the parents our children need us to be: people who can acknowledge our struggles and mistakes with messy grace.
How can we help prevent and respond to the misinformation and xenophobic bullying while Coronavirus is a constant topic of conversation and anxiety?
How much supervision should a parent have on their child’s technology use? It’s a question we constantly think about because technology isn’t going anywhere. Several months ago we began working with Jiminy, a parental awareness app that respects young people’s privacy and gives parents some guidance on how to handle the tough conversations around media use.
