Just what I needed to listen to

I just went for a run and listened to your most recent podcast about being a perfectionist as a parent and it was so great. Resonated so much with me and really makes you think about the vibes you are giving off to your children. Keep doing these great podcast interviews they are really wonderful to listen to
