    Stay-at-Home Dads: How to Make It Work

    Stay-at-Home Dads: How to Make It Work

    Many families "make it work" by having both parents earn incomes, while some are able to keep one spouse making money while the other cares for the kids. In the past, many might assume that staying at home is the mom’s role. However, a recent analysis of US Census Data showed that 1 in 6 stay-at-home parents is a stay-at-home dad - and it’s possible the way we use those “stay-at-home” terms is totally wrong. So, what exactly does a stay-at-home dad look like?

NO to the doterra episode

I’ll give 3 stars because I do like listening to the show and I have been doing so for years. But I knocked two stars off for the recent episode on essential oils promoting an MLM company Doterra. There was another essential oils episode a couple of years ago where they mentioned doterra and I wrote an email to the show expressing my concerns. But I guess they don’t care because they decided to do another episode promoting them. MLMs are scams and they prey especially on moms. Are you aware of that Summer? Jonner? MLMs are pyramid schemes. There are great podcasts such as “The Dream” (season 1) and “Sounds like MLM, but Ok” which go into them in depth.

WAY WAY too many adds

Pretty good show with some interesting information but oh my gosh WAY WAY too many adds. Like 1 or 2 I totally get but there are some episodes where there is like 4 or 5! It has seriously made me not listen. 5-10 minutes of adds for a 30 minute show is just too much. The good does not outweigh the bad.
