Mastermind Parenting Podcast

Dec 6, 2022

The amazing Daniel Maté joined me for this week's episode. With his father, Gabor Maté, Daniel has recently authored The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture. In this revolutionary book, they recognize the prevailing understanding of “normal” as false, neglecting the roles that trauma and stress, and the pressures of modern-day living, exert on our bodies and our minds at the expense of good health.

Are you struggling to find the best ways to ensure a strong bond between yourself and your parents and/or your children? Daniel Maté has the answer. As an award-winning lyricist and composer for musical theater, Daniel has a unique perspective on strengthening relationships between parents and their children. Join us for a fascinating conversation! 

"The vulnerable thing for me was in the last workshop we did, something happened between us on stage where I thought an agreement got violated, trust got violated. There was a breakdown in collaboration, basically, and I got triggered."

In this episode, you will learn the following:

  1. The difference between being intelligent about emotions and being emotionally intelligent.
  2. How the adult parent child relationship is workable, but often not worked on.
  3. The performative nature of Daniel and his father's candor about difficult topics.

As always, thanks for listening, and be sure and head over to Facebook and you can join my free group Mastermind Parenting Community, where we post tips and tools and do pop up Live conversations where I do extra teaching and coaching to support you in helping your strong-willed children so that they can FEEL better and DO better.
