Lifesaver Podcast!!!

Wow! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for since I became a Mom. I want to parent differently that how I was raised, but have no guidebook for it. THIS IS IT!! It helps me to relax, make mistakes, take the pressure off myself and my kids and reset. Basically, it helps me to “be” and “be human”. Parenting isn’t always light and filled with rainbows! I do love that there is dialogue that is non-shaming. I trust these people. There are workshops and plenty of teachable chunks here. My review can only give 5 stars. This podcast is worth a whole galaxy of stars! 💗💙💗💙✨✨🙏🙏Thank you SO much!!
