Customer Reviews

cool cockatiel ,

13

I love this!!!! I am 11 and I came across this (on my iPod I might add) and I totally relate because my parents won’t let me have a phone until I’m 13.

Kaylee Grande ,

Why

I’m confused I wish it was more comforting for tweens and sounded less like a teacher

Seaside Harmony Sarah ,

Very practical

I love the practical nature of the advice and that the preteen is on the podcast sometimes. I need advice but I also want my daughter to be able to listen to someone who sounds like her. So far, I am very impressed with the subject manner and the general Philosophy of parenting. Thank you for making this great resource!
