In 2011, Akron Children’s Hospital helped parents put these same technologies to good use by launching 60-Second Positive Parenting, a series of podcasts providing moms and dads with brief, timely refreshers on a family of parenting topics.
The series is hosted by child psychologist Geoffrey Putt, PsyD, who draws upon his expertise as the director of parenting and family support services at Akron Children’s Hospital, as well as his experiences as a father. Dr. Putt also coordinates the hospital’s Positive Parenting Program, which offers proven strategies and techniques to manage a child’s behavior in caring and constructive ways.
To date, there have been 5,598 views of the 60-Second Positive Parenting videos, or about 335,880 seconds.
