Our hope is that “Parentalk, Sound Advice in Crazy Times” will be an indispensable resource in a time when faddish advice for parents abounds, life’s stresses have sky rocketed and parents are deeply in need of reliable and wise counsel.
“Parentalk” will bring our twenty plus years of experience as the founders and directors of Soho Parenting to the online community. We hope to share our unique combination of psychological insight and reassuring guidance to provide parents with a healthy and realistic approach to family life. This blog will address the very practical and common concerns like children’s sleep problems, sibling rivalry and discipline. We will also tackle the more complicated issues facing families as well: coping with a child’s atypical development, managing parental anger, and how to communicate with children about difficult issues such as money, divorce, and death.
In this pressure cooker world, “Parentalk” will ground parents and teach tools for stress relief. In a society in which technology has transformed the way we communicate, “Parentalk” will help you safeguard your family’s primacy and privacy. In a culture that blurs boundaries between parents and children, “Parentalk” reverses the trend of indulgence and is committed to helping parents stay lovingly in charge.
