Crown Yourself ,

Compassion for Kids

What an exceptional podcast for shifting perspectives about parenting - especially when you’re having a difficult time as a parent. Kirk’s compassionate outlook toward grace for yourself, as a parent, and toward your kids changes the game. He does a great job of normalizing conversations around anxieties and the weirdness of life. And he does a great job of bringing in humor, love, and practical strategies, giving you full permission to accept what is.

Help is on the way

Allowing my SWC to do “adult” things like getting the TV on a channel for all of us to watch made him feel empowered and happy. My husband and I had a great weekend with our compliant child and our strong-willed thanks to this podcast. Thank you for helping to love my children and to learn to regulate myself!

Butterfly 71111 ,

You’ve changed my mindset and taught me so much

Thank you for giving hope and solid advice!
