I L❤️VE Susan Stiffelman
I L❤️VE Susan Stiffelman’s Podcast. I L❤️VE the L❤️VING information she and her guest gives. Hand on Heart.
Susan’s vast knowledge, experience, and connections to other helpful professionals are such helpful resources. I really appreciate her reminders to check in with ourselves in order to see the larger picture, and how she then guides toward improving communication and experiences with our children. Her way of communicating doesn’t leave me feeling judged, but rather seen and understood as just another parent struggling a bit and trying to do better. It is a safe space to learn and grow as a parent and there are always plenty of additional resources offered/mentioned. (Side note, her book is also excellent and one I keep going back to.)
Best parenting podcast
This is one of the best parenting podcast I heard so far. It has been speaking to me and giving me new perspectives as a parent. Susan provides great resources and wonderful book suggestions from her wide variety of brilliant guests she has on her shows. Can’t stop listening!
