Dr. Shimi Kang Discusses “Dolphin Parenting”

Award-Winning Harvard-trained physician and author of the just-released new book, The Dolphin Way: A Parent’s Guide To Raising Healthy, Happy, and Motivated Kids Without Turning Into a Tiger, Dr. Shimi Kang is an expert on human motivation, offering people the keys they need to succeed in the workplace and at home. With over fifteen years of clinical experience and extensive training in the science that lies behind motivation and mental wellness, Dr. Kang shows people how to cultivate the skills needed to flourish both professionally and personally.

Dr. Kang recently appeared on BT Vancouver to talk about her new book. Believing that the “Tiger” approach to parenting diminishes lifelong learning, internal drive, and long-term happiness in children, Dr. Kang instead advocates her “Dolphin Parenting” model, which encourages collaboration, social skills, creativity, and internal motivation in the way in which we raise our children.
