Podcasts are a great tool to have when you’re eager to learn, but you’re too busy being a supermom or superdad to sit down and read a book. You can listen to them in the car, in the shower, during a workout, while you’re cleaning or even while cooking dinner.
Here are some of our favorite parenting podcasts.
Are you looking for “the path to peace with your preschooler?” Then this is the podcast for you. Christina Perez and special guests cover a wide-range of topics including “the difference between threats and consequences” and “how to handle your child’s big emotions.”
The Mom Hour
This podcast is hosted by Sarah Powers and Meagan Francis. The two moms have eight kids between them ranging in all ages, so they’re guaranteed to know a thing or two about parenting.
This podcast is hosted by best-selling author, Susan Cain. The podcast is inspired by her book, “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.” The podcast is focused on parenting of introverted children, and it covers the challenges and joys that can come with it.
