         Didn’t just change my parenting... changed my life!

        "There is so much [in this podcast] for any parent....I have learned so much, particularly around the behavior I found intolerable...and understand how to reframe my attitude for what was going on has been so helpful.  Suffice to say, jump on, sign up, don’t miss an episode. Thank you very much SS. Thank you!"  
         Lifesaver podcast

        "Wow! This is exactly what I've been looking for since I became a Mom. I want to parent differently than how I was raised, but have no gidebook for it. THIS IS IT! It helps me relax, make mistakes, take the pressure off myself and my kids and reset. Basically, it helps me to "be" and "be human..." My review can only give 5 stars. This podcast is worth a whole galaxy of stars! Thank you!  
         Be the Captain!

        "I absolutely love this podcast. As a parent recently committed to emotionally focused therapy in both my parenting and my role as a spouse, Susan's wisdom is like the cool breeze on a hot summer day. I love her simple and memorable analogies which remind me to be the captainof the ship that my kids need me to be! Great podcast. I can't get enough!
