Episode #94: When Your Parenting Journey Isn’t What You Expected

In this episode, we talk with Einat Nathan, a parenting expert, counselor, and author from Israel. Her international bestseller My Everything: The Parent I Want to Be, The Children I Hope to Raise (translated from the Hebrew Haimsheli), resonates with mothers worldwide who have read it and discovered a new way to look at their children as independent people, not just an extension of themselves. Einat helps parents with a fresh approach to parenting and is mom to 5 children, ranging in age from 8 to 21. Her second book, Mishelanu, is dedicated to relationships with teenagers.

Join us as we discuss with Einat the difference in parenting expectations in the US versus Israel, how the way our parents raised us affected our thoughts on parenting, and what pressures we face as parents in this digital age.
