Episode 50: Goodness of Fit

Episode 50: Goodness of Fit

When talking about his sad mess of a childhood, author Augustine Boroughs’ fantasy of normalcy resembled to that of “fabric-softener, tuna-salad-on-white, PTA-meeting normal”. In his autobiography, Running with Scissors, Boroughs writes about his guardian conjuring a mental health excuse by giving him the directive to pop pills, drink liquor and fake his own suicide so that he could get out of going school. As a reader you can’t help but think in what ways these childhood experiences shaped Boroughs’ life views. Being prepared to respond to life’s events as you know best and to bounce back from personal, social, and societal adversity is the hallmark of resilience.

Today’s guest, Dr. Robert Brooks, returns with his brilliant insights to help us make the connections between resiliency, self-discipline, and parenting and how the we must place great importance on the idea of goodness of fit!
