Audrey ThumbnailIf you missed it last night, be sure to check out the CBC documentary, Hyper Parents and Coddled Kids. It’s on again tonight at 10pm EST or you can watch it online.

Keep an eye on the Connected Parenting blog for Jennifer Kolari‘s upcoming post on this very issue (hint: kids need to experience some bumps along the way in order to develop the neurological hardware to deal with adversity).

Please remember that the advice given on this blog is not meant to replace medical advice or the direct advice of a mental health care professional.
"Connected Parenting advises us not just how to parent, but—far more important—who to be as parents. The therapeutic methods suggested by Jennifer Kolari are based not on simple-minded behavioural solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws, but also for our own larger ones."
—Gabor Maté, M.D.

"A must read for parents, educators, and any other adults who want to connect in a deeply caring and positive way with the children in their lives."
—Barbara Coloroso
