More than just parenting advice

This podcast is such a treat and extends well beyond parenting tips. It is forward thinking and expansive in a way I appreciate so much. She has great guests and is a very thoughtful host. I love this one.

Amazing podcast, comes from the heart

Petal Modeste is an excellent personality- her questions come from the heart and she brings on people who are well regarded. Intelligence and thoughtfulness in one podcast without the fluff. Well done Petal!

Fantastic

Parenting for the Future is a podcast that I’ve highly recommended to several friends. I have three children, 14, 12, and 9, and Petale’s conversations are insightful and always relevant. My personal favorites are Girls Dealing with Anxiety and the History of Segregation in Federal Housing. Thank you Petale!!!
