Aspen Institute Presents

Parenting in the 21st Century

Episode Guide »
Can women have it all? What does having it all even mean? Katie Couric interviews Anne-Marie Slaughter on her extremely popular, highly controversial Atlantic magazine article, "Why Women Still Can' t Have It All." This discussion, which took place at the Aspen Ideas Festival, examines the challenges working mothers face when trying to reach the pinnacles of their professional lives while raising families. Slaughter, the first woman director of policy planning for the US State Department and now a Princeton University professor, shares her own anecdotes of work-family life balance and making hard choices. Also in this episode: What are the goals of parenting? Do we want happiness or success for our kids? And are we going to land our kids in therapy through 'overparenting'? We'll hear from Amy Chua of Tiger Mom fame, Playful Parenting author and psychologist Lawrence Cohen, and Lori Gottlieb, psychotherapist and New York Times best-selling author of Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough.
