The ABCs of Parenting with Sara Colalillo

In Episode 6 we discuss the ABCs of parenting with Sara Colalillo from the Parenting Lab at the University of British Columbia. We chat about how affect, behaviour, and cognition play important roles in parenting. How does a parents emotional state impact their relationship with their children? How does the perception of their child's behaviour determine a parents response? When does cognition play a role? Can parenting style cause mental health issues?
