    Raising Kids While Doing Your Own Work

    Raising Kids While Doing Your Own Work

    Can a podcast change someone's life or the way they parent? Listen as Ligia, one of my loyal and most dedicated listeners shares her expereince having consumed the ENTIRE 7 years worth of the content of this podcast. 
    Ligia became a mom at age 41. She is a mom to a 9 year old girl who has been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. 
    What lessons has she learned? How has her life changed? In what ways has she grown?  What concrete things has she applied from the show into her own parenting? Has she seen results? Was it all worth it in the end?  Has she gotten tired of me and my voice?  Where is she now and what is next for her? Here is a quote from this epsiode: 
    "Great parenting begins with knnowing who you are." 
    The hardest part about parenting is NNOT parenting. It's dowing your own work, while raising kids. 
    Please enjoy and remember doing your own work while parenting is hard. Stay on course, be gentle and easy on yourself. It’s a worthwhile journey. Continue learning and growing, and pause to recognize and celebrate your wins along the way.

    (Special) Should Kids Do Chores-Part 2

    (Special) Should Kids Do Chores-Part 2

    This is Part 2 of a two part show. 
     We took a deep dive into the topic of chores. In the first part we talked about our feelings about the word-chores, shared our own experiences of growing up doing chores, unpacked the why of assigning chores to kids, started a discussion of ages and development and expectations and answered a listener question.
    As well as, we talked about the importance of parental attitude, engaging kids seamlessly into the process using playfulness and teaching crucial lessons and life-long skills, like responsibility and helpfulness and imparting our values without control. 
    In this part we continue the discussion of what kids are capable of doing at different ages, we both share how we do chores with our own kiddos, answer some fantastic listener questions, talk about intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, and tell you what we think about paying kids for doing chores. A super-packed, useful and really helpful episode sprinkled with humor and fun. 
    Think of this episode as a masterclass on chores. Read the article we mentioned in this epsiode.

Fantastic parenting podcast

Anna Seewald offers the perfect balance of wise and authentic, helpful and honest. Her conversations are inspiring and empowering, and I highly recommend this podcast for anyone looking to be a calmer, more confident parent.

emily historian ,

Best parenting podcast

Wow I have learned so much from Anna’s holistic approach. I am growing so much as a whole person through parenting and Anna and her deeply researched interviews. W. Her Guests are such a help. Some things I’ve implemented: 15 min limit on Ig for myself! Breathing through my nose.Reassessing my perspective when I find myself saying to my partner “I feel disconnected “ and so much more about mind-body connection, feeling my feelings physiologically, and working with my kid to problem solve.

Ellen Gottlieb ,

Best Parenting Podcast

Anna properly named her podcast because she defines authenticity. Parents will learn so much about how to be a conscious parent in a judgment-free zone. I highly recommend it!
