    A Personal, Self-Serving, 5-Minute Podcast!

    A Personal, Self-Serving, 5-Minute Podcast!

    A Personal, Self-Serving, 5-Minute Podcast!
    This is personal and self-serving so if you don’t want to listen to all 5:39 of it, here’s the gist. You don’t owe me anything and I don’t need you to support me. I do want you to know that in order for me to get paid by the brands who advertise on the podcast, you have to actually listen to the ads. They know if you skip them or not! You can play through the ads at 1.5 speed and that works. You just have to let the ad play through for it to count. So if you feel so inclined, listen to the ads. I do appreciate that. For those who are interested, I explain how the ads work in this short podcast.

    You Are NOT Responsible For Your Child’s Happiness, Mood or Gratitude
    This is hard. Some of you were emotionally abandoned as a child. Some were dismissed and ignored. Some of you are empaths and feel emotions deeply. So how can you stay connected with your child while you teach them how to handle the inevitable disappointment, frustration, and boredom of life? Kirk shows you how in this important podcast.

    Kids Are NOT Supposed To Be Immediately Obedient
    How many of you have been told kids are supposed to be immediately obedient? Maybe you were raised with that awful little saying, “Obey right away, all the way, with a happy heart.” And now you have a strong-willed child who I can guarantee will NEVER listen the first time. You will judged and question yourself, as if you are doing something wrong. I want to show you a different and  better way to raise a curious, loving, and responsible child.

Calm Parenting Podcast

Best parenting podcast I’ve found for practical, inspiring advice and information. From a mom of 5 kids ages 9-adult.

Great podcast

Super great podcast!!! Please don't pick on homeschoolers though. we are definitely not all the same, just like public schoolers aren't...and we are doing the best we can🤣

GainzD ,

Teen son

We found Kirk at a homeschool convention and it was by far the best experience there. We have not one but 3 strong willed kids 16-8 and over the years we have leaned so much and continue to grow and apply as much as we learn. This is such fundamental parenting no tricks or long books just straight real world examples on how to best connect with your kids for a healthy, loving long lasting relationship. We think we need to change our kids but a lot of it is inner work and how we see our strong willed children, so we can find the best approach for building a strong respectful relationship between family. So so worth every minute!
