This episode was a topic that I requested & need to listen to several more times. It makes me so sad when my (teen) kiddos argue & call each other stupid. It breaks my heart, especially when my younger brother & I never had that type of relationship. This episode was super helpful, as all of them are. I’ve learned so much about myself & my kiddos by listening each week & reading “Life WILL Get Better”. Thanks, Dr. Nicole 💗

There is so much goodness in these podcasts! I haven’t even listened to all of them! Every episode I listen to I learn so much about myself and my kids. How to regulate all of us and be better! I have a couple of really hard kids and dr. Nicole has renewed the hope I needed!!

This is a must for parents

Thank you Dr Nicole, I just found yours podcast and as a grandma of 1 and another on the way this is really helpful. I was raised in a totally different era and my own parenting style needed some tuning up. I want my daughter to be able to parent the best she can when her new baby comes along and I feel like your podcast is really informative & you’ve made it simple to understand and help find the time to play with our children and so much more. I’m definitely going to continue to listen and pass the information to my daughter and hopefully get her to listen. Right now she feels she doesn’t have time for anything being pregnant with a one yrs old running around. I really wanted to help her and I found the right place I believe with this podcast. Can’t wait to hear more.

I’m a mother of 3 one being on the spectrum he’s 23 now , one with ADHD who is 19 & my daughter 21 who is on her 2nd child. I feel this podcast is great for parents and grandparents. Actually if you haven’t already I’d love an episode on grand-parenting the best way and any advice for us grandparents. I wish I had you when my children were younger. So parents, please take some time and listen while you’re doing choirs or on a walk bc I think you will get so much out of this podcast. I sincerely wish I had something like this when my kids was little.
