Parenting Without Ego | Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Clinical Psychologist, New York Times Bestselling Author
#220 - New intro/ aired May 31, 2016. With the recent College Admissions Scandal, this classic Atomic Moms episode couldn’t be more timely. Conscious parenting trailblazer and 2x Atomic Moms guest Dr. Shefali Tsabary returns to talk about ego, boundaries, and all the psychological sticky stuff that comes with parenting. Her New York Times bestseller The Conscious Parent: Transforming Ourselves, Empowering our Children , The Awakened Family: A Revolution in Parenting, and her appearance on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday has changed the conversation from how can we fix our kids to how can we heal ourselves. As Oprah Winfrey declared at a live event I attended, "Parents...you will be wowed and awed by her." Listeners, we can't wait to hear what you think/feel.

The Operation Varsity Blues bribery scheme, you guys! Last week, Lori Loughlin, Aunt Becky on Full House, was arrested and released on one million dollar bail. And when the news of the bribery scheme broke, the US attorney for the district of Massachusetts made it clear who was responsible, saying, “The parents are the prime movers of this fraud.”
What motivates some parents to risk everything to get their kids into elite colleges? And what can we all learn as parents from this terrible mess?
Our esteemed guest Dr. Robin Berman, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, GOOP contributor, and author of Permission to Parent, admits this problem is “so insidious and starts at preschool.” So how do we raise our children with integrity in a world that’s feeling more and more like a Lifetime movie? Robin Berman, MD, helps us make sense of the college admissions scandal and reminds us of the true meaning of successful parenting. Listen up!
