It’s so hard to be a great parent – are you strict, a helicopter, too laid back? Are you the mom from “I Tonya” (I sure hope not) or one of the moms in “This is Us?” Being a parent is incredibly difficult but today, we have a great guest offering advice on how to navigate all the pitfalls of parenting even if you’ve been raised by a toxic parent yourself.
On our latest edition of Outlier Parenting, we feature parenting expert and author Peg Streep. Streep is currently a regular contributor to PsychologyToday.com and PsychCentral.com. She writes about the mother-daughter relationship, goal-setting, disengagement, and other topics. Recently, she published Daughter Detox: Recovering From an Unloving Mother and Reclaiming Your Life which offers the daughters of unloving mothers vital information, guidance, and real strategies for healing from childhood experiences. Prior to Daughter Detox, she wrote Mastering The Art Of Quitting which unpacks the psychological meaning behind why it’s so hard to quit, even when you’ve slowly come to realize that your goals are doing more harm than good.
