Are you a parent? If so, you may have heard of the term gentle parenting. It’s a different approach from how many of us millennials were raised, including myself.
Instead of shaming, blaming, and punishing. Gentle parenting emphasizes empathy and communication.
However, some parents take it too far and don’t set boundaries for their child’s behavior. So, how can we balance gentle parenting and setting boundaries? This discussion isn’t limited to just parents; it applies to everyone in romantic relationships and relationships with our family and friends.
Today’s guest is my client and friend, Justine David, OTR/L, founder and clinical director of The Sensory Brain, Justine specializes in treating individuals of all ages with various challenges, including Sensory Processing Disorder, Tic Disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, Autism, ADHD/ADD, and motor skills difficulties.
A USC occupational therapy alumna, she educates professionals about neurodiversity and sensory behaviors through workshops and presentations. Additionally, she serves as a parenting coach and trained birth doula, advocating for client empowerment and education.
