8 TED Talks on Parenthood that Every Parent Should Listen To

I love TED talks. They are so inspiring and help me see things from a different point of view. As parents, we all struggle from time to time with our children. These 8 TED talks can really encourage you, and help you as you strive to become a better parent:

1. How to Raise Successful Kids-Without Over-Parenting  by Julie Lythcott-Haims

Parenting is not one of Julie’s passions, but she has amazing insight in teaching parents how to help children be successful without being over-bearing and controlling of what they do.


 2. Conscious Parenting by Shefali Tsabary


This one is a great video that will walk you through the importance of positive parenting and how what we do as parents make impact on our children as adults.


3. Responsible parenting: Create memories, not expectations  by Austeja Landsbergiene


Austeja explains well how we as parents should not force so many expectations on our children. I love that she touches on how important it is to create memories with our children.


4. Happiness 101- Teaching our children the habits of happiness  by Erin Michelle Threlfall

In this video, Erin talks about how we can teach children to be happy no matter the circumstances and how being happy can help them in all aspects of life.


5. Building strong children  by Ranbir Puar

Ranbir calmly gives great advice on how to help children grow up strong and confident in who they are. She also touches on why parents should help children feel loved and valued.


 6. The secret to motivating your child  by Jennifer Nacif

We all at some point struggle to help our children be motivated to get things done. Jennifer teaches parents how to individually tailor motivation tips to what a child.


7. Prepare Our Kids for Life, Not Standardized Tests   by Ted Dintersmith

I love this video. I have yet to meet a parent…or teacher, that thinks standardized testing is a good idea. Ted talks about how it’s essential to teaching our kids life skills that will guide them through adulthood. Those skills aren’t taught in school, and definitely aren’t required knowledge for the standardized tests.


8. 5 connections that will change children’s lives   by Laura Jana

Laura offers some eye-opening concepts on parenting and marketing tactics when it comes to children. It’s fun to listen to her ideas on what we should be doing to meet a child’s needs.



I love listening to TED talks as I clean the house, or while I’m in the car running errands. Which talks inspired you the most to try different parenting styles?

    I love watching those talks, but haven’t seen any of these parenting-focused ones. I’m a little biased towards family travel, so the one about making memories is going to be the one I start with.

    These all sound very good. My kids are older (my youngest being a teen) but I feel like parenting will always be my job and I still need to listen to a few of these…starting with #1.
