Love this podcast!
I really enjoy this podcast and the hearts of the women in wanting to share their wisdom and experiences with gentle parenting. I grew up in a large family, where as children we were often dismissed, which left me feeling insignificant. Wanting my children to know they were loved, I thought I was gently parenting them, but I was actually permissively parenting them. This has been eye opening for me and, although my children are grown now, I’m thankful to be learning how I should respond to my Grandson when he cries or is upset, and how I can help him work through those feelings when his parents aren’t around.
Such a blessing!
Love this podcast so much! It has been such a help and encouragement to me.
So thankful for these gentle parents!
Abby, Katie and Sam have been so helpful to me on my journey into gentle parenting. They don't pretend to be anything they are not, and I find this podcast so down to earth and relatable! Most importantly, they are Christ-centered, Bible-focused, and gentle parenting geniuses. I'm so thankful for their work and for being a "friend" to us through this podcast!
