Working Parent Resource

The Working Parent Resource podcast explores the "New Rules" of Working Parenthood. Society is changing at an unprecedented rate, and working parents are struggling to keep up. We're faced with challenges that didn't exist even 10 years ago in our careers, our relationships, as parents, and as individuals. We don't have a model for how to blend all of the different areas of our lives in a way that really works in the modern world. This show draws wisdom from areas such as personal development, learning theory, productivity, leadership, relationship management, and psychology in general to help build meaningful lives, connected families, and more dynamic workplaces... one family and one company at a time.

Episode Summary: 

Today we’re talking about building your confidence as a parent.  If you’ve read my blog post entitled “The Hardest Thing About Being a Parent,” you’ll know that I had a very hard time adjusting to all of the new things you have to learn when you become a parent.  As an overachiever in my life before kids, I was used to learning new skills and mastering them.  To put it bluntly, I was used to being GOOD at things in my life.   And one of the hardest things I had to do as a parent was realize that I was never going to be perfect at it.  Our kids change all the time and it was really disorienting to have to adapt and adjust to every new developmental stage that my child went through, especially in those early days when he was changing so FAST.  Our guest today offers some wonderful insights and 5 practical tips to build confidence, even when these little ones change the rules of the game on us. 

Dr. Marie Renaud is a doctor in Clinical Psychology with 30 years of experience working in the public service in Scotland. She has particular expertise in the areas of relationships between parents and children and in fostering close relationships with babies. The focus of her work has been to collaborate with families and support them to develop and maintain the best relationships with their children. In 2011, she designed a specific program to raise awareness of the importance of the early years and the need to support parents’ well-being so that they can be truly present and available to their young children.  Most recently she has been focusing on the development of her company: Mindful Evolution, and her program: "Life with New Baby" in which she shares her passion for the wonders of child development and her commitment to parents’ well-being.
