Am I Screwing up my Child

Food for thought. Positive and uplifting!

denverrach ,

Exactly what I’ve been looking for!!

I’m so glad I found this podcast! Like most Moms, I struggle at times trying to be the best parent I can be, but don’t have time to read lengthy books or attend seminars. Kristina’s short but wisdom-filled podcasts cut right to the chase as she provides simple and effective parenting tips on a variety of topics. Unlike others who can be patronizing and judgy, or just plain boring, she delivers sound parenting advice as a totally relatable Mom of four, with humor and empathy. Can’t wait for the next episode!
