Episode 3: The wisdom circle with Kate Silverton

Reading Time: < 1 minute

For episode 3 of the TTS Talking Early Years Podcast, Alistair Bryce-Clegg is joined once again by Kate Silverton, a leading broadcaster, child psychologist, and author. This episode delves into the concept of the “wisdom circle”.  

The importance of support networks

Kate discusses ancestral parenting models and the importance of extended support networks in nurturing children. She touches on the challenges modern parents face in a more isolated context, contrasting it with the traditional village-like support systems. 

 The conversation touches on the need for a collective approach, where parents, educators, and practitioners create a supportive community for children, promoting a sense of safety and ease during transitions.
