Evidence based

Excellent evidence based podcast. Every parent should listen to this.

love it

As a new mom of a boy this podcast is a goldmine of information about how to raise the next generation of boys - how boys process emotions, how mothers and fathers parent differently and how each style is important to child development, and how to manage the new challenges posed by technology. Their advice is grounded in the latest neuroscience too, which is sooo helpful. Absolutely love it!

Finally

Not a postcast sharing personnal thoughts of experience parents. This one is based on science and facts. No sensationalism but shares good insights on human behaviors.
