3 Boys Mama ❤️ ,

A breath of fresh air!

Parenting is so hard, and everything I’ve ever heard from this lovely couple has been golden! They are real people who do real things and they share the good and the not-so-good. They make parenting feel so doable! Plus, their accents are just fun to listen to. Listen and you won’t regret it!

Intentional Parenting

As a mom of three kids (6, 4 and 8 months) I live this podcast and the great tips that it provides. I can feel that I am a better parent and more intentional because of the things I learn. Thank you!

My favourite podcast

This podcast helps me to feel less alone as a parent. So helpful, optimistic and realistic! I enjoy the anecdotes from their lives. Love all the research based stuff too. It’s great hearing both Justin and Kylie’s perspectives. I highly recommend everything Justin does, his books have been so helpful too!
