Podcast 187: The 8 Types of Parenting Anxiety with Dana Dorfman

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast, we’re sitting down with Dr. Dana Dorfman, psychotherapist and author of the book When Worry Works: How to Harness Your Parenting Stress and Guide Your Teen to Success. Dr. Dorfman discusses the 8 different parental anxiety archetypes, where parents inadvertently perpetuate their kids’ anxieties around achievement, resulting in the mental health epidemic seen in teenagers today. She shares her motivation to dive deep into this topic, and even shares her own relatable stories as she faces the challenge of raising two teenagers! 

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s so important to recognize more than just our child’s achievements. Yes, we all want to succeed, but it’s important not to overlook the many other wonderful dimensions of your child’s personality!
  • Why emotional intelligence is key to our children leading fulfilling lives and achieving success in society. 
  • How you can make a difference by teaching your child the importance of social-emotional skills.
  • Why being anxious is natural and can actually protect and prepare you (and your child) for the future.
