01 Apr Being Well Podcast: Parenting and Intimate Relationships with Christine Carter
Parenting and forming strong intimate relationships can be challenging under the best of circumstances, and life is rarely perfect. In this episode we had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Christine Carter, author of Raising Happiness and The Sweet Spot, about how we can form strong intimate relationships with our children, parents, and partners.
In the first part of our conversation we’ll be tackling topics related to parenting and relationships, while in the second we’ll explore “The Sweet Spot” – that point of balance where we are productive and powerful while remaining joyful and relaxed.
During this first part, we cover:
- How a child’s growth can be impacted by the internal life of their caretakers.
- What we can do to establish our own autonomy separate from our parents.
- How parents can continue to evolve their relationship with adult children.
- The unasked questions we can answer in our relationships.
