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,
Great Factual Information Dr. Maguire!
