Looking for sports parenting perspective? Start here

This series is a must-listen for any parent of a young athlete. Jeff, one of the country’s best sportswriters, and Catherine, a parenting expert and family coach who frequently appears on the Today Show, each bring a unique perspective to topics both heavy and humorous. The married couple's easy chemistry, personal anecdotes, compelling guests and timely discussions make for a fun, topical listen -- though I side with Catherine in the Elton John-Hall and Oates debate!

Show Was Spot On

I had no idea what to expect and I was very glad I spent some Sunday quiet time listening to episode 8. I couldn't agree more - it's your job as a parent to advocate for your kids and to get them what they need. It's such an important message to get out and wonderful piece to include in your podcast.
I absolutely pray for average kids - well adjusted, healthy, functioning, life loving, fun and engaged kids. As for our fat shaming 20 something year old. I was horrified by here apology. "I'm sorry I didn't know how to use the technology so I could continue to be a closet perpetrator of hate." Coincidently, I have a high school friend who is a lawyer in LA who is pursuing this case with both guns a blazing. Ferris Bueller!!! Is it even a fair fight?
I can't wait to hear the rest of them.
