Really informative! The information provided in the newest episode was touching and emotional, but really valuable. Great interview !
Engaging and Helpful!
I just finished listening to the episode on teens and stress. I've already raised two kids into adulthood and I currently have three at home including one teen. He has had some major ups and downs over the past year - challenges that I've never experienced as a parent. His stress levels have been through the roof and coping mechanisms that work have been difficult to find. I wish I had found this episode sooner. The experts Miriam brought on to the show were so helpful. They provided some basic tools and ideas that I hadn't thought of because I was truly overthinking. I thoroughly enjoy Miriam's engaging connection with her audience too. I've subscribed!
I’ve listened two both podcasts and I was immediately drawn in by Miriam’s ability to connect with her listeners. Not only does this Podcast welcome families to listen, it’s relatable to every walk of life. So many important lessons to learn, and they’re taught here!
