Parenting in the modern age, with Dr Amit Sen

From adding “Mom” or “Dad” in your social media bios, to reading up on the different types of parenting techniques- parenting has become a hot topic in the modern age. On this special episode of the parenting podcast, Express Parenting head Anuradha Varma is in conversation with Dr. Amit Sen, Child and Adolescent psychiatrist and co-founder of Children First. They discuss the challenges faced by parents and children in a world that is becoming increasingly structured, pressure to perform has increased substantially and the idea of a ‘community’ needs to be rebuilt. Dr. Sen discusses how children and adolescents in the modern age are affected by various external factors as well as their home life, how this shapes their perspectives even as adults, how to be conscious of signs of mental health problems, and how to work towards helping your child become the best version of themselves.
