On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Dara Lovitz about . Dara is the mother of 6-year old twin daughters. She works for a legal nonprofit organization (paid), runs a nonprofit vegan advocacy group (unpaid), and loves to read and write (breaks even). Her most recent works include Twinsight: A Guide to Raising Emotionally Healthy Twins and Catching Falling Cradles: A Gentle Approach to Classic Rhymes.
“Each child is unique and what works for one child might not work for another. There are some generalities in raising children. I mean, all children no matter who they are need love. They need to feel safe and secure in their homes, in their bodies,” Dara said. “You know, they need to have bodily autonomy. I mean, there are certain things that are general across the board for all children; and then there’s a whole lot of variability depending on the makeup and the wiring of the child.”
Listen to the podcast for more insights and suggestions about the importance of recognizing your child’s uniqueness.
