Good data but biased

I love the data and continue to watch because I can draw my own conclusions from the data. However, be careful because I’m some episodes there is a clear liberal or feminist bias.

Best Parenting Information EVER

I deeply appreciate Jen's tireless research and her academic approach. I come away from each episode feeling like I've engaged in a collegiate level discussion on parenting and child development. I also really appreciate her consistent acknowledgement of WEIRD demographics and bias in the studies she discusses and her thorough discussion of race and privilege - so good and so necessary! Along with Alfie Kohn and another podcast, Unruffled, the information that I've metabolized here have led me to adopt a parenting approach that is inspired by RIE and radically different than the models that I've inherited from the culture at large. Radically different in a way that is both challenging but also more philosophically and spiritually resonant with the type of parent/person/family I want to be and create. Thank you!

Really great research

This is a great podcast for parents who are digging deep into respectful parenting and want to know the science behind alot of the decisions we need to make as parents. The host is so thorough and intelligent. I've learned so much about respectful parenting from YPM, and have been connected to many other great resources through it as well. My only critique: I find it distracting how host seems to be reading from her notes. I think it makes it a little hard to listen to, given that each podcast is densely loaded with a lot of information. The amount of the info isnt the problem, just the delivery. I think if it were a recorded with a bit more of a convesational style, or perhaps even broken up into a few different segments, the information would be easier to absorb.

Love this podcast

I love that this podcast challenges me to think critically about why I parent the way I do and how I want to parent in the future. While I don’t line up 100% to this parenting style I love that the episodes are so well researched and I often times find myself bringing up things I learned in random conversations. I am fairly certain this podcast will make me a better parent - especially when my son enters toddlerhood.

Researched, referenced, thoughtful & thought-provoking. So happy i found this podcast!!!

Thank you Jen for all your hard work researching parenting topics that are so important and then condensing that information into accessible chunks that I can listen to in the car/kicthen during my day. My husband is an engineer and very detailed oriented. It's great for me to be able to read some of the research you reference and have stats etc. So often after we have had a discussion about what I have learned on your podcast I am able to send him to the research as well and then we both feel educated. I found your show through The Pregnancy Podcast with Vanessa Marten and I'm thrilled that there are such fabulous resources out there for me to learn from both while I am pregnant and when I have my son (in a few months). Thank you!!!!!

Great for professionals who work with kids or parents-to-be as well!

I am in the process of binge-listening to this podcast and am almost through the whole thing after finding it just a couple of weeks ago! As a child development obsessed person who doesn’t have kids of my own yet, this really gives me my fix. Jen is so thoughtful, clever, thorough, and open-minded in her approach to research and interviewing. I appreciate this project so so very much. Thank you and keep up the great work!!(The only thing I would change is that I think you could ditch the intro/outro)

Scientific parenting methods

This is a very well researched podcast about parenting. It talks about child development theories and how you can integrate into your parenting techniques. Great for educated mamas without much real life parenting experience :-)

Full of great information!

She presents the research in a way that is informative and easy to understand and also summarizes it well so i know what to do with the information. She doesn’t add a lot of “fluff” that I tend to fast forward through in other podcasts but at the same time it’s incredibly interesting and I’m intrigued by all the great information she’s presenting. I’m so grateful I found this podcast!

So grateful for Jen and this podcast!

As a mom of an almost 2-year-old, intending to raise him in the most conscious manner possible, I am so grateful for all of the research and hard work that Jen does to be able to present this information in a way I can easily listen and absorb it. It has made me think and reconsider a lot of things about parenting, school options, and more. It is thought-provoking, entertaining, and so educational. I recommend it tell my parent friends!

Incredible for new parents and even teachers

I am a new parent and teacher. These episodes are wonderfully packed with information that informs best practice for interacting with children that’s backed by data. Also, it’s not “preachy” like some other podcasts which is greatly appreciated. I agree with the RIE approach to parenting but some of the podcasts out there are a little much without showing the data that supports the practice.It’s ideal for me working as an itinerant teacher to listen to this podcast, too!
