I like taking parenting advice from a doctor!

Prism Parenting is fantastic! Dr. Heather and the people she interviews teach scientific methods proven to improve family dynamics and help you become a more competent parent. The truth is as a parent you can either copy the way you were parented and “try” to do better or you can KNOW you are doing better by listening to the experts!

Encouragement for the journey

Thank you Heather for your gift to parents. I like your factual approach and your compassion; being a parent I bring my own unique foibles and gifts. Your generous words encourage my journey, especially now as a grandparent and a piano teacher.
I love to keep learning, and your podcast let’s me learn as I drive. I’m currently halfway through the fascinating interview entitled, “Babies are not pizzas.” I’ve shared some ideas from your talk about parenting and technology with a few people and hope it was helpful.
Looking forward to your next podcast,
Val
