019 -An honest look at parenting with Julia Pappas

This episode I chat to Julia Pappas – a psychologist, parenting coach, and the host of the podcast Minimum Viable Parenting.  As working parents, there’s always guilt that we’re getting it wrong.  How much time is OK on screens, and why there’s a direct correlation between social media usage and depression.  We discuss boundaries, attachment and examining the expectations we have of ourselves as parents.
