Nurture vs Nurture is a new podcast brought to you by the producers of Armchair Expert. Dr. Wendy Mogel, social-clinical psychologist and author, specializes in the protection and promotion of self-reliance, resilience, accountability and exuberance in children and she is our fearless leader in this new endeavor. Each week, Dr. Wendy sits down with a different set of parents for a therapy session. She brings her forty years of experience working with families to these intimate and wonderfully voyeuristic conversations. This podcast allows the listener to go on another family's journey and to receive practical advice along the way. Wendy proves that, perhaps counterintuitively, there is nothing more universal than our specificity. In each episode, Wendy also introduces us to a foreign word that is untranslatable into English in order to enhance our minds and vocabularies on parenthood, family and communication with those we love the most.

FrenchHornChicka ,

Such quality advice!!! We want more!!!

I’m the type of person that listens to A LOT of podcasts, including A LOT of self help/advice/parenting shows. Dr. Mogel is so sweet, so knowledgeable, so nice to listen to, and so brilliantly good at what she does! I look forward to every episode that drops, even though it’s not so frequent these days. Would love to hear more!!!

I love it but where is it?

Love this show so much. Is season 2 over? I listen to every episode of everything AE and don’t think they’ve said anything about it. Helpppp!

Not Alone!

Sometimes as a parent you feel like you’re in a silo and not enough people talk about the day to day messiness of raising kids. Listening to the guidance from Dr. Wendy that she gives to fellow parents, and I appreciate it so much!
