This is the parenting podcast I needed

Absolutely authentic advice, understanding and compassion for the parenting journey. Cathy has a wealth of knowledge and experience both as a mom and a professor. Todd makes sure listeners understand the episode’s topic and can apply it to their own lives that very day. ZPR is a very valuable resource.

Absolutely Love the Show!

I have been listening to ZPR for approximately five years. I love the topics they discuss and their motto: “The best predictor of a child’s well-being is a parent’s self-understanding.” The show has helped me look inside myself and work on my triggers and past trauma to become a better parent. I’m forever grateful for this show because I became a much better and more understanding parent to my two children. I have also become a much better human because of Cathy and Todd. Keep on trucking!

I’m part of the family

I’ve been listening to Zen Parenting Radio for almost 10 years. I feel like we’ve raised our kids together and that I am part of the family. I look forward to listening to them chat about the way they manage this crazy world and keep their connection strong with each other and their awesome kids. Thank you Todd and Cathy, for continuing to offer amazing insight and for being so raw, honest and real. Keep it up!
