Parenting advice from experts and storytellers.

The best TEDTalks for Moms who want the best for their children

I want the best for my daughter

I am constantly striving to create an environment of learning for my daughter. I feel heavy from time to time, with the worry and wonder of what I could be doing to set her up for the best opportunities, provide her inspiration, allow her to follow her passions, protect her from risk. I want parenting advice from experts and storytellers who have the same mission in mind: to create a better world for our children.

It’s terrifying, exhausting, exhilarating, and I am constantly questioning myself. As an educator, I gravitate toward learning for myself, researching and trying to gain knowledge from those who I look up to. I’m also strapped for time being a business running mama so I turn to video to learn more about what I feel I know nothing about – parenting.

Using Video to Support My Parenting Role

Learning through video is meaningful (within reason – here’s an example) and I use it as a technique with my daughter when it’s thoughtful and applicable. The same applies for me and the place I go for meaningful content is TedTalks. I love TedTalks. This community has a vast collection of informative videos about almost every topic, in multiple languages, highlighting various cultures – it’s incredible.

Finding Meaningful Support in Parenting

No matter what I go to watch, or even listen to in the background, I find myself intrigued and amazed by the passion and impact of these experts. These are meaningful videos of people standing up and sharing what they know and what they love and you can hear it in the videos I’ve shared below.

15 TEDTalks Every Parent Should Watch

My all time favourite Ted Talk and the core of why I do what I do (I’ve highlighted this before but it’s so worth noting again).

Preparing Our Children for the World We Created

Advice to Help You Be A Great Parent

Oh I love this one! This is a really funny talk that all comes down to a simple concept: being happy and how that leads us to success. What it really tells us is how damaged our current structure of education is in expecting everyone to be average, rather than lifting everyone up, especially our children.

Feeling That You’re Not Alone in Parenting

The real life aspects of parenting are overwhelming. Here is one Dad’s hilarious look at how it’s “not all fun and boogers… and how nursery rhymes suck”.

Educational Parenting Videos

Love love love playful learning and I talk about it so often (see here). And this video highlights how important play is in learning about science (which I also talk about here – and share some awesome science activities you can do with your kiddos). The boy beautifully presents his interest for technology and how play became passion.

Taking Away the Overwhelm From Parenting

This one is all about empowering children. Using an example based in India, stories of children who become driven to change the world all from being a simple gift; empowerment.

Strong Female Inspiration

Where should our daughters be looking for role models in their everyday experience?

Raising Our Daughters to Be Themselves

What videos do you gravitate toward when you’re having a hard parenting moment? What do you like about video (or audio) when it comes to learning for yourself? I would love to hear about it below!
