Relevant material for many stages of parenting!

I find the episodes of Like a Sponge to be very relevant and informative for both school-related and home-life parenting issues. These well-produced and engaging segments include topics from a range of age-related issues. I felt equally engaged with the content that is grade school focused as with the episodes on early adolescence and planning for college. I will keep tuning in!
