Psychologist Warren Cann talks with 3RRR radio host Jacinta Parsons about effective modern parenting.

Warren and Jacinta discuss criticisms of modern parenting and how increased media emphasis on parenting can lead to anxiety. They discuss how parenting has changed over time and how fathers are now much more engaged in their children’s lives, with positive results.

Warren describes studies showing improvements in parenting and debunks some of the myths around parenting, for example that working mothers are somehow letting their children down.
