This husband and wife pair have spent the past 20 + years in the trenches of raising five very different children, most of whom have insanely strong wills. In the process, they have learned a few things about responsible, respectful, resilient, self-disciplined, independent, faithful young adults who are prepared to meet the challenges of life. They want to share their knowledge and experience with you.

Listen in each week for an animated and thought-provoking discussion about raising kids who can stand on their own two feet. You will walk away with both strategies and inspiration to help you strengthen your family and set your kids up for success.

(And, in case you were wondering, Lynnette is a Certified Leadership Parenting Coach and Greg is a pediatric dentist who works with all sorts of kids and their parents.)

Great real life examples!

I love your podcast! I am 37 weeks pregnant with my first kid but still find this podcast very informational for new mommies. Still in season one, but I am binge listening from start to finish. Thank you for sharing your wisdom!
