Parenting. It's fun. It's challenging. It crosses racial and ethnic and socioeconomic barriers. Oh, and once you have "it" figured out, everything changes. While it certainly takes a village to raise a child, this podcast focuses on the parent. We hope to learn from other parents while giving you, the listener, some actionable tips to help you become a better parent. Note: This podcast is sponsored by gDiapers. Learn more at gdiapers.com.

Not a perfect parent? This podcast is for you!
gDiapers, who produces the show, identified a hole in the podcast world: There were not any podcasts with parents helping parents. Nobody is a "true expert" when it comes to parenting, but ideally we can learn from each other!
Note: I'm the host of this podcast! But that means I get the best of both worlds -- talking with and learning from amazing parents!
Great information and a rare focus on the PARENTS
Love this idea! Glad to have a place to focus on the parents, and not just on parenting. The host is engaging and the guests have valuable info for parents. Yay!
Love the fun but real look at parenting in the early days. Reminds me just how little I knew when our kids were born. Great to hear from both first time and "experienced" parents.
