In today’s much-anticipated show, Dr. Dan talks about Resilience with the incredible Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, a professor of pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, practicing doctor of adolescent medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Co-Director of the Center for Parent and Teen Communication, and author of several books including “Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Kids Roots and Wings,” “Raising Kids to Thrive: Balancing Love with Expectations and Protection with Trust,” “Letting Go with Love and Confidence” and proud father.
Dr. Dan and Dr. Ginsburg’s discussion is a must-listen-to for all parents and listeners will learn a lot from Dr. Ginsburg’s medical career and work with children, his passions (including being a Dad), and the third edition of his best selling book Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Kids Roots and Wings.
The show starts with this powerful definition:
“Resilience is the capacity to rise above difficult circumstances, allowing our children to exist in this less-than-perfect world, while moving forward with optimism and confidence.”
After defining resilience, Dr. Ken explains in his passionate and compelling way how parents (and other loving adults in a child’s life) are the guides and the keys to building the foundation of success for all children. In addition he reveals that the real definition of love, in his opinion, is seeing/accepting a person as who he or she is just as they are which in turn helps them see themselves.
Dr. Dan and Dr. Ken dispel many unhealthy myths about parenting including that teens don’t care what their parents think about them or that teens just don’t care about anything. What listeners learn is that parents are EVERYTHING — especially to their adolescents. Later, they discuss when and how parents need to move away from parenting their children and how important it is to just listen.
Finally the show wraps up with a discussion of the essential “tools” our children need to navigate life and Dr. Ken’s very personal Parent Footprint moment.
Today’s show will be a revelation for all parents and caregivers.
