In episode 57, Teodora Pavkovic—psychologist and parent coach focused on parenting in the age of technology—joins us for a discussion about how technology has impacted the relationship between parents and their children. Specifically, she talks about how, as children grow up, there’s a discrepancy between what mentoring and monitoring technology looks like, and how parents and children relate to one another.

Her expertise is in the fields of emotional intelligence, digital wellness and parenting in the age of technology.
