The Family Podcast Network offers podcasts to parents who want professional information on parenting for kids that are tough, and even those that are not. I will be offering 3 podcasts a week free of charge that will be fun, informative, research-based and potentially answer the question about your kid or parenting that you have had. Family Parenting Network will offer a network for you to connect with other parents that are experiencing similar or the same things you are and exchange struggles, ideas, and support.
After getting a Master's Degree in Psychology and training a host of parents from multiple different races, backgrounds, income levels, I knew I'd found my passion: showing people how to experience stress free parenting. One irrefutable fact I have learned is that, regardless of where you are in parenting, we all have one thing very much in common: we are all doing the absolute very best we can and in that top performance, we still mess up as parents. This seems to be an issue many parents struggle to want to admit (I admit it in myself as well).
Fundamentally we parents are all susceptible to the human condition in that we make mistakes. I have been teaching parenting trainings for the last 5 years and when asked "Trey, am I a bad parent" I always tell them that a bad parent is not defined by making mistakes, or how many they make, but upon how willing are they to be honest about them and actually work on changing them. My desire for parents is not to be perfect at your job (good luck with that one), but to find skills and knowledge, and have a solid understanding of their kids and their kids.
The purpose with Family Network Podcast is to freely talk about the issues that parents face and how we can make parenting more fun! The issues I discuss, and their solutions, will in most cases be empirically studied (a bunch of nerds in this field [no offense intended...I'm one too] have studied it and tested whether it works or does not work) and not just "what worked for me."
