Customer Reviews

Entertaining, educational and practical

I am thrilled for this new podcast. I follow maryruth on Instagram and love her approach. Finally someone with training and experience talks about the things that really matter, in a way that helps my husband and I be better parents. I can’t wait for the other episodes to air and wish they came out every week.

Very informative, a good listen!

As parents it is important to keep learning and growing in our parenting skills and knowledge. Dr. Hackett has a wealth of knowledge share! Although I don’t always agree, I always learn. It is so important to hear well reasoned rationale for the parenting decisions we all face. I highly recommend!

Funny smart and helpful

Dr MaryRuth is an excellent source of wisdom for parenting! She’s helped me a lot and she is funny, smart, AND helpful!
