Family Whispering- The Use of Family Strength and Collaboration to Successfully Handle Family Issues
In this show, Melinda Blau, co-author with the late Tracy Hogg of the Baby Whisperer and baby whisperer series, returns to Psych Up to invite us to consider the power of Family Whispering, the topic of her new book and weekly column for Huffington Post. Applicable for families of any configuration, family whispering helps families observe and understand their own family dynamics in a way that fosters success for all family members.

What makes this show so unique to Psych Up is that Melinda Blau is joined by a studio audience of parents like Danielle Grandin, mother of two young sons and other parents of teens who listen and weigh in with comments about their own families.

Together with host, Dr. Suzanne Phillips, a discussion takes off from all sides that includes recognizing family activities and values, the question of parental authenticity with teens, the value and redefinition of chores, the issue of fairness from parent and child perspectives and more… On hearing the diverse and interesting questions and views discussed, it is likely you will think about the value of Family Whispering for your family.
