In my approach to Transformative Parenting®, fostering positive, two-way communication between parent and baby is extremely important. Unfortunately, many parents find themselves needing to go back to work shortly after giving birth, and so miss out on this critical opportunity. In this very interesting piece on CNN, Michelle Wu, the president of the Boston City Council talks about her decision to take her baby to work with her. Let’s hope her example will empower more parents to keep their child with them during these early months of life, and increase workplace acceptance of infants accompanying their parents!
About The Author
As a psychiatrist in New York City, I am grateful to have a satisfying job helping people feel better and more empowered.
However, with the arrival of my daughter came a new mission: Empowering parents to experience a deeper, more productive, more fulfilling relationship with their children.
I call my method Transformative Parenting®. It represents a beautiful coming together of what I’ve learned in my spiritual path, from my work with children with developmental delays, from adults who have experienced mental health issues later in life, and my medical, psychodynamic, and Jungian analytic training.
Parenting is a huge responsibility, but I have found it is also a wonderful opportunity for personal growth and transformation. Through Transformative Parenting®, we can recognize and remove unconscious inner conflicts, and barriers to happiness and confidence. Moreover, since its insights and techniques for self-expansion have wide applicability, they are useful for everyone, not only parents.
