When high parental expectations do more harm than good

In this weeks Off The Cuff Episode we talk about high parental expectations. Academic expectations, social expectations, extra curricular expectations…do we burden our kids with our aspirations? Are we somewhere secretly hoping that our kids excel in things that we never did as kids? Does the level of parental expectations vary by ethnic groups?

Or should we have parental expectations so that we are able to motivate our kids to do better. Do high parental expectations raise the bar for performance and hence propel them to success.

Listen in as 3 moms sit around the table, sipping tea, discuss their experiences, opinions and hopeful behaviors.
