Tune in to your own emotions to teach your teenagers to tune in to theirs! Source: David Pereiras VillagrÃ¡/123RF We know that emotion socialization, which is the way parents communicate with kids about their emotions, is an important predictor of later emotional health. The emotion socialization model was first proposed by Eisenberg and colleagues in 1998, and it has been supported in many research studies since. The best part of the model is that it has immediate implications for intervention. Since emotion socialization is so powerful, let’s teach parents to do it right! Research on preschool through late adolescence has consistently supported the validity of the model. As parents are taught to engage in better emotion socialization, their kid’s mental health improves. This holds true for internalizing behaviors such as withdrawal, depression , and anxiety, and externalizing behaviors such as aggression and acting out. The model works in preschool, elementary … [Read more...] about Why Are Some Teens So Much Better at Coping with Stress?

My Dad's Alligator Leather Doctor's Bag Source: Google Images As I climbed up the step ladder to retrieve the alligator leather doctor’s bag on the top shelf in the closet, I thought of my father doing house calls when he was a general practitioner in Queens, New York. When he retired in the 1980s he gave me his doctor’s bag. There, it sat on the top shelf until three weeks ago when I began seeing children and their families in their backyards because of Covid-19 . I’m a behavioral/developmental pediatrician/family therapist, a mouthful to describe my MD specialty. I’ve practiced in a Bay Area suburb for the last forty years. I see children and their families who are struggling at school or at home.

This may seem like an odd idea, but if you’ll give me a little leeway, I’ll explain why it’s a perfect analogy. The mechanisms of microbial evolution can help to explain the insanity of horned conspiracy Vikings, mass delusions about election fraud, inadvertent insurrections, everything that happened in January of this year. One of the most interesting scientific mysteries is the mystery of coadunation – how multicellular life sprang into being on our planet. The very first known single-celled organisms emerged over three and a half billion years ago, and it took a full three billion years of evolutionary processing to produce the very first complex forms of life. This extraordinary microbiological transition was the most pivotal moment in the history of evolution on Earth, … [Read more...] about How Evolution Can Help Us Make Sense of the Insanity
