Hi! I’m Dr. Liza Varvogli, a psychologist, psychotherapist, mother of four, and author of the best-selling parenting book series “Amazing Mom.”
While completing my post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School and at the same time working as a psychoeducational specialist, I was giving parents the back-then state-of-the-art advice: reward good behavior, punish bad ones, and ignore minor nuisances, and everything will be alright.
But did it?
I realized this wasn’t enough.
Parents came back and reported they were still stressed out. Children’s behavior didn’t show any permanent improvement. The family wasn’t livelier or happier.
There was a missing link in the prescribed approach.
As I delved into the latest scientific findings, started my own family, and moved back and forth from Boston to Europe, I realized that the old recipe was actually missing two critical ingredients- self-care and connection.
So I concocted a new parenting recipe based on scientific findings across the board, including stress management, positive psychology, mindfulness, trauma therapy, etc., and a strong and meaningful connection between mom and child.
Adding a dash of my personal experience and that of the thousands of families I have worked with, here’s my down-to-earth, practical parenting manual. You can be the amazing mom you deserve to be for yourself and your kid.
