Our past plays a huge role on how we parent today and that’s what this show is all about.
So you know that I work with parents.
I talk about parenting pretty much always.
I read parenting books for my work and professional development AND…I read parenting books in my spare time.
I listen to parenting podcast and I thought that I was obsessed with the topic of parenting, until I met Avital, aka the Parenting Junkie.
