Extremely valuable!

I so appreciate all the wisdom and insight Dr Meg graciously and generously shares! I’ve gained so much from these podcasts as a husband and father. I’ve shared countless episodes with friends! Thank you so much!!

One small point of frustration for me personally is that none of my questions have been responded to. I’ve emailed two separate times one regarding a sleeping issue we were having with our then 2 yr old and another regarding a few back to back episodes on mothers and work. On those two episodes my wife and I struggled to make sense of the two seemingly mixed messages (from our best understanding). We reached out for clarity on that and never heard back. We also never heard back about our first question with our toddler. I understand that she is surely inundated with messages and emails with such a quantity where some will just not be addressed so that’s ok I just won’t reach out for future questions and will attempt to find answers through other resources. Aside from that small issue we are incredibly grateful for what dr Meg does!

Help!

I recently discovered your podcast, and I am so glad I did! Thank you for the time you put into it for us parents!
I have an 8 year old who HATES school. He is in 2nd grade. His teacher is nice, but very unorganized. It is a small K-5 school, class sizes hover around 20 kids per class. He hates the “crazy” chaotic inside recess and lunch during the winter, hates how long the day is, hates the boring sit in class time. He is a smart boy, and doesn’t hate doing school work. I don’t know how to help him. We’ve explained that this is his job right now, it’s not forever, it will be easier with a positive attitude etc. he has friends (teacher has told me everybody LOVES him) but he does not have that one best buddy. He sits next to his younger brother at lunch and plays with him at recess.
What can I do or say to help him? The poor kid gets sores in and around his mouth from nerves of having to go to school.
I know hard things in like make you stronger and that is why I’m sticking this out, but I’m not sure if it is the right thing to do or not.

Thank you,
Bri

Vaccines

I love Dr. Meeker and have a few of her books too. I was surprised to see an episode on vaccines and was anxious to her her opinion...

I was SHOCKED to hear the episode. I quickly thought, “Surely, there had to be comments/responses to this episode.” I’m glad my gut told me to check the reviews. I’m so pleased with the people who took the time to comment after that episode too, because I completely agree with THEM: the episode truly, disappointingly one-sided and read like a script.

EVERY TIME I hear the pro-vaccinate arguments they read like an ad and NEVER go past the “surface.”

LOVE how all the arguments against vaccines are so through, listed with citations and studies, advocate for TWO sided discussion WITH PHYSICIANS AND SCIENTISTS that are against vaccines. THEY ARE NOT ALL MOM BLOGGERS. Vaccine injuries ARE REAL and not as “rare” as this episode claimed they are. The Truth About Vaccines is a documentary loaded with over 8 hours of IN-DEPTH DATA about each vaccine- not a cheap, 30 minute, one-sided commercial like this episode was.

Sorry Dr. Meg. I’ve enjoyed most of the rest of the podcast though.
