Professor Jean Twenge (Associate Professor of Psychology at San Diego State University) in her second book “The Narcissism Epidemic – Living In The Age of Entitlement” warns parents to stop being their child’s best friend. But why is this behavior dangerous for the child’s development and are there other seemingly innocuous parental styles that harm children? Celebrity Life Coach, Human Behavior Expert and Clinical Hypnotherapist Patrick Wanis PhD goes boldly further when he warns mother’s to stop calling their young sons “the man of the house” or “my little man.” Again, how and why is this behavior detrimental to children’s development?
Patrick Wanis turns to Dr. Vicki Panaccione, Child Psychologist and founder of The Better Parenting Institute for clarification and elaboration of what is dangerous parenting, what is healthy parenting and the real role of a parent. In the enlightening and at times frightening conversation, Dr. Vicki also warns parents about the dangers of “inappropriate seductiveness”; creating anxiety in children; seeking their children’s approval; expecting the child to fulfill the mental and emotional needs of the parent and; sharing a bed with a child.
