How to be a Good Enough Parent

John Louis, Marriage and Family Therapist

17-Oct-17 15:00


Raising a child can be daunting and stressful, especially for first time parents who want the best for their first born. The impulse, however, to over-parent can do more harm than good. Instead of having unrealistic expectations on parenting or for your child, John Louis, a marriage and family therapist, argues parents should settle for “good enough.” John explains the term “good enough parent,” which was coined by British paediatrician Dr Donald Winnicott, talks about the usefulness of the parenting advice industry, and elaborates on strategies for exasperated parents to communicate with their children, including the use of movie therapies.
