Excellent podcast

This is such a great podcast for parenting. I love the motto, raising our children, raising ourselves. One of the best trauma informed parenting podcasts Iā€™ve listened to. Also Annaā€™s calm voice and presence is wonderful in a busy and chaotic world.

Amazingly helpful

I found this podcast through Dr Laura froyen (who I love and is. A Frequent guest). Itā€™s an amazing resource and Iā€™m hooked. Anna is a great interviewer and gets amazing guests- she is a great guide through self improvement in parenting! Iā€™m learning so much. My fav. Episodes have been the breathing one and the Buddhism one- both took me by surprise but I applied the ideas to my mindset right away. 10/10! Going to work my way through the archives episodes. Thanks Anna for all this work- I am benefiting

So helpful! THANK YOU!

Thank you, Anna, for putting such a wonderful resource for parents out in the world. šŸ™šŸ¼ I am a child of war and grew up in a very authoritarian, verbally, psychologically and physically abusive household. When I found out I was going to be a parent, I was petrified. I had no positive modeling and wanted more than anything to be a good mother.

I suffer from chronic anxiety and insomnia and have been diagnosed with CPTSD, so my challenges and triggers are many. But you and your guests have slowly but surely taught me the skills I was lacking, so that with practice, i can at least try to be the best parent I can be.

I am inspired and motivated with every guest you have on. You are a natural at getting the best out of them. With every episode, I grow and am reminded to stay steady and true in my practice. THANK YOU! šŸ™šŸ¼šŸ™šŸ¼šŸ™šŸ¼
