Reclaiming Parenthood. With Tracy Gillett

Reclaiming Parenthood with Tracy Gillett

I am so grateful to have had this conversation; I’ve wanted to talk to Tracy about the idea of reclaiming parenthood for a long time, and I’m thrilled to share it with you today. Her views, backed by science, are a breath of fresh air.

We Talked About

  • Reconnecting with our instincts and the natural flow of Motherhood
  • How does Tracy’s approach to parenting differ from her upbringing?
  • The Psychological impact of excessive praise on children
  • Debunking myths about infant sleep and learning to parent through the night
  • The importance of breastfeeding, and what it means to do so full-term

Things to Remember

“Nobody knows your child like you do. You are the decision maker.”

“We’ve lost the village, and we can recreate it in other ways.”

“It’s an incredible burden on a child if they’re trying to make their parents happy all the time.”

“The more we over praise, the more children start to think that they are valued for what they do not for who they are.”

“Praise the process rather than the outcome.”

“What we need to foster as mothers is that we don’t need to be the same all the time.”

“A bad day doesn’t mean bad parenting.”

― Tracy Gillett
