New Parent Footprint Podcast with Dr. Dan and Dr. Stuart Shanker on  Self Regulation
"There is no such thing as a bad kid."   Dr. Dan Peters welcomes international parenting expert Dr. Stuart Shanker for the latest episode of the Parent Footprint Podcast with Dr. Dan . The two doctors have an encouraging discussion about the concept of self-regulation, stress, and Dr. Shanker's paradigm-shifting new book,  SELF-REG: How to Help Your Child (and You) Break the Stress Cycle and Successfully Engage with Life .

Dr. Shanker reveals his revolutionary new understanding of stress and how it affects children's emotions and behavior, hidden stressors, as well as practical advice for parents to help their kids engage calmly and successfully in learning and life with 5 steps.

Dr. Dan and Dr. Shanker also discuss how self-regulation is the nervous system's way of managing stress and the fact that before  parents can teach their children self-regulation they must master it themselves. The moving discussion highlights the fact that there are no bad kids and that when you see a child differently, you see a different child.
