Best Parenting Information EVER

I deeply appreciate Jen's tireless research and her academic approach. I come away from each episode feeling like I've engaged in a collegiate level discussion on parenting and child development. I also really appreciate her consistent acknowledgement of WEIRD demographics and bias in the studies she discusses and her thorough discussion of race and privilege - so good and so necessary! Along with Alfie Kohn and another podcast, Unruffled, the information that I've metabolized here have led me to adopt a parenting approach that is inspired by RIE and radically different than the models that I've inherited from the culture at large. Radically different in a way that is both challenging but also more philosophically and spiritually resonant with the type of parent/person/family I want to be and create. Thank you!

Really great research

This is a great podcast for parents who are digging deep into respectful parenting and want to know the science behind alot of the decisions we need to make as parents. The host is so thorough and intelligent. I've learned so much about respectful parenting from YPM, and have been connected to many other great resources through it as well. My only critique: I find it distracting how host seems to be reading from her notes. I think it makes it a little hard to listen to, given that each podcast is densely loaded with a lot of information. The amount of the info isnt the problem, just the delivery. I think if it were a recorded with a bit more of a convesational style, or perhaps even broken up into a few different segments, the information would be easier to absorb.

Love this podcast

I love that this podcast challenges me to think critically about why I parent the way I do and how I want to parent in the future. While I don’t line up 100% to this parenting style I love that the episodes are so well researched and I often times find myself bringing up things I learned in random conversations. I am fairly certain this podcast will make me a better parent - especially when my son enters toddlerhood.
