A Parenting Paradise!

So many parenting shows are filled with fluff or only provide one very niche example of the topic at hand, but Life Kit is the complete opposite! Even when they're not speaking on a topic I personally struggle with in parenthood, I still always walk away with something new in my parenting toolbox that I'm sure to use down the road! Another great win for NPR - keep up the great work guys!

Cookie Monster episode led me astray

Super disappointed that I showed my kids Cookie Monster after hearing an episode about how he’s changed and now teaches some restraint. I pulled up 3 examples of Cookie Monster recently where he exhibited terrible behavior. I should have screened these before showing my kids. This did the opposite of teaching them the lesson I had in mind. Everything in that episode is now discredited in my mind.

I’m not even a parent and I love this

I’m 24 and am not even a little bit interested in having kids in the near future but I love and listen to this podcast to mentally prepare for when I am ready to become a parent. Great show, great tips!
