It’s Time to Put Aside Societal Expectations and Timelines, with Dan Peters

As pressure in our complex world mounts, how are parents and bright and quirky kids supposed to navigate stressors and expectations without burning out?

Licensed psychologist Dan Peters, PhD says that it’s important to let go of the pressure cooker of expectations. By getting off the treadmill of where bright and quirky kids are “supposed” to be, parents can meet kids where they are now. Bright and quirky kids often achieve developmental milestones on their own timeline, and that’s perfectly ok.

Take a listen (and take a deep breath). There are no societal timelines that “must” be met.
