Shame free parenting advice

Parenting advice that makes sense and easy to listen to

Constant ah ha moments

Thank you Justin and Kylie, what an highly beneficial podcast and if only I had found it sooner then 2021! I loved the parental guidance series and it has definitely generated discussion with my partner, kids and friends around topics that we once avoided. The ah ha moments just keep coming and my parenting is staying more intentional for longer these days. You are both so authentic and I look forward to each weeks episode!

My saving grace in a crazy world

I started listening to this podcast after having my first baby in covid lockdown. Isolated from family and friends Justin and the team became my only voice of calm and reason in such a challenging time.

I had the pleasure of meeting Justin many moons ago when he came out to my school (teacher) to chat to the teachers and parents. Back then I knew it all, I was the perfect parent… and then a year or so later I actually became one! Oh how wrong I was!

Justin and Kylie, you challenge my thinking in a great way, open many conversations with my husband and I and make me feel confident that I can give my children a better family life.

I’d love some more tips/ tricks at life with a baby/ toddler. I’m imagining the toddler stage will be a handful. Also navigating other people’s opinions on taking your approach to parenting rather than the authoritarian approach we were raised with?

Keep up the amazing work team, so grateful to have found you.
