    Episode 173-The Movie: "Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters" Guests: Bart Johnson and Robyn Lively

    With the cultural atmosphere shifting towards a belief that truth is defined by the individual, it’s easy to lose sight of godly gender roles and the importance that each parent plays in the lives of their children. Media and entertainment at large have placed a target on the backs of men, identifying them as emotionally-dead buffoons, whose impact on their families doesn’t matter. It’s left a lot of men questioning if their presence does have any value to their families in particular.

Good info

I find this podcast has good info but it’s very religious based. Also not super great at answering questions by email - she must be too busy as a Dr and podcaster.

Has become outright religious and political propaganda

I am a huge fan of Meg’s books and have enjoyed some episodes of this podcast in the past but it’s become to religiously extreme and politically conservative lately. Todays episode feel like outright religious and political propaganda - arguing Kellyanne Conway* is a role model for college-age young women (*also happens to be on the Board of the guest’s organization). Ick! Meg the best way to get your good messages out to all women is to stop alienating so many of us my aligning yourself with religious extremists.

I enjoy!

I really enjoy this podcast and approach to parenting. I do enjoy how she sometimes weaves her religious values into her advice, it just feels genuine and upfront.
