Dr. Darcia Narvaez is an professor of psychology at the University of Notre Dame, author & researcher.
Dr. Narvaez academic scholarship has moved from work on nonconscious moral rationality (in the 1990s), to moral character education in the schools (late 1990s- early 2000s), to the neurobiology of moral development (mid 2000s to present), to the study of evolved parenting practices (presently), and the study of small-band hunter-gatherers who represent the type of society in which humans evolved (presently). All this comes together in a moral developmental systems theory that emphasizes the ongoing epigenetic plasticity of how we develop our humanity and our morality. We are co-constructed by our families and our experiences and thats why the focus of our conversation was on all the myths, mistakes and issues with the modern way of parenting and the research that supports these claims.
If you are a parent, will one day be, or just want to further understand our influence on the development of children, this is a must listen to episode. The information & research shared on this podcast can help prevent making mistakes that could lead to permanent damage & could help you better understand the consequences of our actions & our most common misunderstandings of the needs of children.
