128. Data-Driven Decisions for Your Family with Emily Oster #WellnessWednesdays
Play • 1 hr 3 min

I’m so excited to be connecting with this week’s guest: economics professor and author, Emily Oster. Having devoured her first two books on pregnancy, Expecting Better and Cribsheet, I couldn’t wait to read her newest masterpiece. The Family Firm, an exploration of how to parent the early school years, did not disappoint. I knew I had to have her on the show to delve deeper into the subject of running your ever-evolving family as though it were business. 

We cover every issue over the elementary period, from the importance of choosing the “best” school for your child, to nutrition, sleep, and how to help your children step into independence while providing a safe, supportive environment for them to thrive. 

You will learn about...

  • Decision making as a parent
  • The Four ‘F’s
  • Nutrition and developing your children’s palette 
  • Why family dinners are so important 
  • The science of sleep
  • Parenting styles and finding the sweet spot
  • School and extracurricular activities 
  • Feelings, entertainment, and managing screen time
