What happens when two parent coaches, one a Christian and the other an agnostic Jew, sit down to talk about parenting? They take their listeners from surviving to thriving!

Our podcast is titled “Raising Adults,” arising from the fact that we’ve often been frustrated by the phrase “raising children.” Instead, we hope to raise fully functioning, healthy, responsible, character-filled adults. You’ll notice our revolutionary philosophy – Future Focused Parenting - takes center stage on the podcast, as we chat about relevant parenting issues with an eye toward the adults we want our children to become. Our podcast listeners will also hear us open every episode with our own personal “why” for the topic we’re discussing.

A must listen podcast!

The title says it all! Where ever you are in your parenting journey you will learn and gather valuable takeaways that you can integrate into your lives and see positive results! And, I would be remiss not to mention the many many “ah ha” moments. We all want to feel heard and validated and Kira and Deana do just that! The work they are doing with Future Focused Parenting is truly making a difference for so many families including families to be! Bless you both and know that we are so grateful for the time, energy, expertise, resources and commitment you both have given to this deeply connecting podcast! - K (president, mother of 2 and wife)

So relatable!

As a Dad, I love listening to this podcast as it gives me whole new perspectives on what my parenting partner might be thinking. The discussion is great - because the two viewpoints ensure I don’t feel lectured to!

GREAT podcast for parents of any stage!

I recommend this podcast to all my mama and mama-to-be friends! I heard them speak at a MOPS event in Seattle and totally signed on to their philosophies around raising kids. Each episode is packed with great things to think about and tips to try. As parents, we all want to raise happy, healthy, functional adults, and Kira and Deana are so helpful in putting up the scaffolding for that to happen in your own family.
