The Agenda with Steve Paikin: Mother Knows Best

Tags: , ,

My Appearance on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin Show June 4th, 2012.

“From TVO’s new miniseries The Slap to recent books criticizing North American parenting styles, provocative Time Magazine covers and the reignited “Mommy Wars”: if it really takes a village to raise a child, why are mothers on the attack? The Agenda examines why modern parenting is so judgmental.”

    Hey Steve, thanks for the great topic and the cracker jack women you found to discuss this topic. OUTSTANDING. I’m always an eager and willing guest. You may have gathered I am ‘opinionated’. Till next time. Alyson

    I enjoyed the handling of this interesting & highly emotional topic. Moms (including me) can have a hard time understanding that their methods may actually not be helpful for their children. I thought the way this information was presented will give fellow moms things to think about to improve their connection with their children, while at the same time, not shaping them into helpless & anxious adults. Well done Alyson!

    I love this stuff. I can’t wait to see you in London! I feel Alyson is an integral part of a new generation. I for one am becoming a less stressed parent of 3. I think 3 or more kids is what people need to let their guards down and get the village involved with their kids! I hope I can do my part to contribute to Alyson’s parenting revolution! Thanks for the inspiration!
