Good advice

Hi all, thanks so much for the good advice. I have used many of your tips and tricks. I also like your guests too. Thanks for communicating how much you care because sometimes it's lonely. I live in a foreign country and after 9 years I'm still not great with the language. I find myself constantly questioning my parenting because most people here would do most things differently. It's helpful to know you're out there with positive ideas for turning the (sometimes) negative into the positive. It's also comforting to know that you struggle with balancing all of your priorities and that it's okay to not be perfect. From your magic words to your anecdotes and your resources, I find your podcast to be a moment for me to take stock and celebrate the small victories I may forget about in the race to do it all.

Does not get to the point

I don’t mind the rabbit holes that she warns you about but there is so much self promotion and cross referencing of other resources. She had just a few minutes of relevant information. I think it’s misleading

A little frustrating

The topics are great and the advice is good but an episode could be 38 minutes long and she only covers 6 minutes of the topic.
