Returning to Old School Wellness Practices
How long has it been since you've built a puzzle with your kids or gone on a neighborhood walk? Could the healing and connection you're seeking be found in a simple cardboard box or in your own backyard? In today's episode, we're joined by Kaylin Marcotte, founder of Jiggy Puzzles. She shares her story of discovering puzzles as a form of meditation and then building a company that elevates the common jigsaw puzzle into frameable art! Kaylin reveals the key practices that got her through "Shark Tank" and the pandemic years (practices that can fortify our own resilience too)!
The Playful Path to Reparenting
What is reparenting and how can it help you become a better parent?

Join us in the reparenting journey--commit to show up to the present moment with wisdom, compassion, and playful discovery.

We also discuss the importance of self-compassion and offer tools to move through difficult moments in parenting.
Restoring Family Peace Through Conflict Resolution

Creating a Family Culture of Giving

Encouraging and Hopeful
Dr. Mary’s podcast is filled with such encouraging and practical parenting advice. She has such a calm approach to helping parents build deeper connections with their children. All the counsel I have heard from her, on and off the podcast, have been so helpful to me! Her counsel has helped me start to see the joy in parenting and in my children again.
Wisdom and, yes, compassion!
Dr. Mary’s wisdom and compassion come through. I’ve long been a fan of her book. Her vast experience as a pediatrician, mother to 8 boys (!) and spiritual perspective from several religions is enlightening, comforting and so helpful in this journey of parenting. Even though my son is grown, I still find sage advice I can apply to enhance our conversations.
