Monday, 10 October

Parental preference is a developmental stage most children go through. If you are the parent out of favour this can sting, and if you are the preferred parent of the moment it can be exhausting! What is the best thing to do at these times to support your child? How can you manage those deep feelings of pain that being rejected can bring? And if you feel touched out by your child, what can you do without rupturing your relationship? Dr Martha answers all of this and on todays podcast.
