What happens when two parent coaches, one a Christian and the other an agnostic Jew, sit down to talk about parenting? They take their listeners from surviving to thriving!

Our podcast is titled “Raising Adults,” arising from the fact that we’ve often been frustrated by the phrase “raising children.” Instead, we hope to raise fully functioning, healthy, responsible, character-filled adults. You’ll notice our revolutionary philosophy – Future Focused Parenting - takes center stage on the podcast, as we chat about relevant parenting issues with an eye toward the adults we want our children to become. Our podcast listeners will also hear us open every episode with our own personal “why” for the topic we’re discussing.

So informative

I love listening to this podcast. Their different personalities offer different options, so their content isn’t preachy. I’ve applied some of their advice to my parenting. I know I’m a great Mum but feel like I’ve got ALL the bases covered after I’ve listened to them, if you know what I mean..Thank you for the content! x
