Parenting expert and Waldorf advocate speaks about the value of decluttering your spaces to simplify your life and offers tips on how to do so. Protect your child's senses!
Stand in Your Power, Women
Chelsea gets on her soapbox, lol, and tells women to stand in their power, embrace your femininity and be the boss of your home. Do not be pressured by outsiders how to raise your child(ren) and what decisions to make for them.
Color vs Character
Child advocate and parenting specialist, Chelsea Vail, brings up the hard to discuss topic of race and racism in America. She addresses why she feels strongly that we're doing a disservice to all children, and specifically, the black community by teaching that racism is systemic and that white people are inherently racist. This is regressive, not progressive.
Intriguing & raw
Off the cuff, real, grassroots…meant to spark conversations and challenge the mainstream narrative. Straight forward and bold, no apologies made for spitting facts, personal theories or opinions.
Some good, some bad
Some good Waldorf info but the anti-VAX crap and total disregard for anyone that does not identify as a straight.
Was enjoying until she got political
I was really enjoying this podcast until I realized how political the speaker was making things. Why does a podcast and website about Waldorf need to mention political agendas? Is there any space that we can escape the madness that is modern politics?
I just want to learn about Waldorf, so I guess I’ll have to keep looking for a podcast that focuses on that, and not on the noise.
