Show Notes

Some misconceptions about parenting and child development need to be put to rest. That's precisely what Katie and I tackle head-on in our latest Baby Tribe podcast episode. We zero in on one tenacious falsehood: the supposed link between vaccines and autism. We demystify the science and underscore the dangers of such misinformation, including the resurgence of preventable diseases like measles. But our chat isn't all serious business; we weave in light-hearted tales of forgetfulness and the mayhem of temper tantrums, reassuring parents that these are normal markers of growing up, not red flags of concern.

 We interview Clinical Psychologist Dr Rebecca Quin where we navigate the multifaceted landscape of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), we engage in a candid conversation about the genetic and environmental factors influencing ASD development. The discussion blossoms as we emphasize the diverse expressions of ASD and the critical nature of personalized support strategies. Visual aids, occupational therapy, and debunking common misconceptions about ASD's causes are just a few gems we unearth. Parents will find solace and empowerment in our reflections on the potential for children with ASD, showcasing the transformative impact of the right support and early intervention.

 Wrapping up, we don't just leave you with knowledge; we offer a toolkit for handling the wild ride of child emotions, especially the bewildering world of tantrums and meltdowns. Dr Quin helps differentiate between the two, providing a glimpse into effective strategies for fostering emotional intelligence in your little ones. So, as you tune in, remember: you're part of a community that's growing stronger, wiser, and more connected with every episode. Join us as we continue to guide you through the beautiful chaos of parenting, ensuring your journey is filled with support and smiles—and, of course, a few less myths.
