No Time to Read The Latest Parenting Books? Podcasts Might Be the Answer!

No Time to Read The Latest Parenting Books? Podcasts Might Be the Answer!

As a parent, you probably don’t have the luxury of kicking back, putting your feet up, and burying yourself in a book as often as you would like. If you're like many busy parents, podcasts have become a preferred choice for moms and dads who want to hear different perspectives on a variety of topics. Whether you are traveling, or busy carpooling, podcasts are a great way to learn something new or connect with others on a special topic. There is so much helpful parenting information available though, and you want to soak in as much as possible. 

Even children and teens are enjoying podcasts. And podcasts for parents and kids abound. Here are a few picked just for you and your kids.

Even when there’s no time for reading, there’s always time for listening! Check out these podcasts for a little education and a lot of inspiration.
