Worth the listen!

After browsing through the reviews, obviously most are very positive but then some give 1 star ratings, which I think are very unrealistic. Here are my two cents:Listen to more than one episode before making an opinion. Yes, the show is broadcasted by two slightly older white guys, so yeah, there will probably be a little bit of bias. However, they are very knowledgeable and try to refrain from biases or let you know when they may not have the perfect answer. If you’re looking for something that is based on science rather than anecdotes, you’re going to get a lot out of this podcast. Is some of the science controversial or one-sided? Sure, but it’s still more than I ever knew, plus they always encourage you to be a citizen scientist on the claims they make so you can understand for yourself. People act like there should always be a set-in-stone answer for things, but that is simply not the case, and this show does a good job of providing a general foundation to positively raising your child/children.

Not much actual science

As a scientist, I am disappointed. This podcast seems to present opinions as science.

Weird First Episode

The potty training episode was very confusing. There weren’t any answers to potty training. A lot of talking in circles

Some interesting parts but lots of assumptions

I really wanted to like this. I want a science based approach to understanding my kid but they just kill me with the “moms parent this way and dads this way”. Just not my experience as a mom or as a daughter.

As a father of two boys

As a father of two boys I’m sometimes concerned that boys are underperforming in school at every level, and our culture seems afraid to acknowledge this out of fear of risking progress made with girls. This podcast gives great actionable advice for parents of both boys and girls, paying particular attention to the unique needs of each. If you want great advice that doesn’t gloss over (or entirely omit) differences between boys and girls, this podcast is highly recommended.

Was All For This Until...

Bummer, I wanted to like this. It was the episode on Children’s’ Brains and Screen Time that helped me decide. Claims that the future of university education is under stress because due to our “safe space culture”; specifically that less men will go to University out of fear they will be accused by a woman for behaviors that make her uncomfortable. That doesn’t sound like a lot of brain science to me. That sounds like the willfully ignorant musings of someone whom I don’t care to spend my time listening to (especially as it concerns raising my son). It’s all small component of the podcast, but it gives me greater insight into how this podcast regards gender and behavior as a whole.

Informative, interesting and helpful

The title says it all. I love the backing of scientific evidence on their positions, and what they advise is based on realistic expectations for families. I have recommended it to all of my mom friends!

Thank you!

My favorite parenting podcast! I’ve tried so many different ideas and the science based approach feels most true to me. I also wrote in a question and had it answered on the podcast! I appreciate everything these two do!

Okay if you keep your skeptic hat firmly on.

Some good stuff here, but ultimately a very biased. I have an issue with people presenting things as scientific facts, when really they’re little more than opinions. There are a lot of claims here that aren’t really backed up by evidence. Or have conflicting research and aren’t as clear cut as they make it out to be. You can point to a study that shows one thing, but you need to mention if there are several other studies that show the complete opposite. That’s the case for many of their claims. Lots of sweeping generalizations regarding gender. The gender fluid episode was really cringe. It wouldn’t bother me so much if they didn’t act like these were hard facts, rather than opinions. Brain science my butt.

Amazing

Love this podcast. They get to the point, use scientific information to back up their reasoning, and it’s just like nothing else out their. I really enjoy and love it and share each episode with my husband!

Insightful

I love this podcast! They talk a lot about the brain science behind normal and abnormal development in boys and girls. It’s educational but presented in such a way as to be easily understood and relatable. There is so much out there about the nurture aspect of raising kids and this focuses a bit more on the nature aspect. Listening has really helped me understand my kids better and realize the difference between healthy and unhealthy behavior. As the mother of a very active boy I especially love their distinction between aggression and violence. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to better understand their kids behavior.

A little biased

Good information from a scientific angle but it’s clearly male research because you can see the bias. It also isn’t as helpful if you don’t have a traditional family

Awesome!

I am only a few episodes in and am really enjoying the podcast so far. Learning more about how children’s brains work, and the difference between boys and girls brains, is really helpful. This is just what I have been looking for. I have four kids (two boys, two girls), a boy and girl in upper grade school and a boy and girl under 5. So I’m dealing with all age groups, both genders, and I really appreciate this perspective. I am all for gender equality and empowering girls/women, but I feel like more focus needs to be put on our boys. Positive role models in media (especially tv shows for young kids...hello Disney) are a lot harder to find for boys. Until I listened to the podcast here about boys, I had never heard about some of these differences in the ways boys bond (at least in recent memory) which I think will be very helpful. I read and listen to a lot of parenting info, and a lot of emphasis is put on talking and emotions which I think is wonderful and important, but I really appreciate this more rounded perspective on what boys need as well, and of course learning more in depth on what girls need as well. Looking forward to getting caught up to the latest episodes and listening as they are released! Thanks for such a well researched and informative podcast!

Finally!

As a mom of two boys, I so appreciate the information and perspective of this podcast. It’s tragic to see our current societal trend trying to wash over decades of clear, vital and relevant research, and I love how refreshing and scientifically insightful these podcast discussions are.

Wow

I’m a mom of two boys and it seriously opened my mind to maybe I’m wasting my time trying to talk to my kids not in a bad way obviously it just made me realize that it is true my kids respond better to me when I play around or when their dad plays wrestle with them, but until today I didn’t see it that way, so thank you 🙏🏽 loved all the information

This is a great podcast but it is missing one imortant thing. We can not access it on Amazon Alexa with voice command like other parenting podcast Zen Parrenting and Janet Launsburry unruffled podcasts. If you don't know how to launch your podcast on Alexa you can use any popular platform like GoVocal.AI to launch your podcast on Alexa. Most of the podcast on Alexa seems to be powered by www.GoVocal.AI/Podcast.
