Online Dating and Unconditional Parenting

Online Dating and Unconditional Parenting
After a few weeks away, we’re back with another episode that dives into Ali’s dating life and explores more theories and ideas around children and parenting.

We first discuss the etiquettes and expectations of texting on dating apps and what’s considered a ‘normal’ amount of interaction before asking someone out for a coffee or a meal.

We then shift gears and move onto exploring Taimur’s theories around intrinsic and extrinsic motivation as well as the ideas from Unconditional Parenting – a book by Alfie Kohn that Taimur has been reading over the past couple of weeks.

It’s another wide-ranging episode but we hope you enjoy listening.
