An actually helpful parent podcast
This podcast really helped me through the “forest years”. A giant thanks for helping me not feel alone and that I am doing a good job, I’m getting really good at this and all the wonderful affirmations of self.
You are doing a good job
I’m not even a mom but absolutely love the show, it’s honesty, kindness, support to all. And the mantra of “you’re doing a good job” is something even non-moms like me need to hear to help keep my head high. Love love love it!
