Great Parenting Help!

Love the podcast, “Let’s Talk Modern Parenting!”, with Laura Pierce! Such great information on having a well-adjusted relationship with your child, starting at birth! Looking forward to, hopefully, Part Two where specific scenarios are discussed more in-depth!

Like a friend!

This podcast is like talking with your most insightful friend. The take aways are real and it’s easy to hear. You don’t need to be a therapist (or even a millennial!) to enjoy the conversations and the expertise of the guests. Keep the episodes coming!!

Millennial Life Encapsulated!

With so many issues that are more specific to our generation, it’s really interesting to hear conversations with mental health experts who are able to help/equip listeners with tools and knowledge needed to navigate this crazy life. Just listened to the NPE episode and was floored by the experiences that people have that have this happen. Wow! Fascinating stuff!
