Cribsheet has had a long relationship with mother-daughter duo Dr. Marti and Erin Erickson aka: The Good Enough Moms throughout the years. Marti and Erin have been a wonderful resource for parents from their former radio show on FM107.1 to their pod casts. We've been guests on both their radio show and podcasts and have sought their expertise on many occasions. I appreciate that their information is based in well-grounded research that they present in a conversational and down-to-earth manner.
Well their site goodenoughmoms.com is celebrating it's 1st anniversary today on 1/11/11. ( You have to love that auspicious date!)
Each week they post a podcast on various topics, issues, joys and challenges we face regarding parenting.
What I love about the site is the fact that you can go back and listen at your leisure and find a topic that may not have applied to you at the time they posted it but you can go back to refer to when you need it. I like to stream them while I work out. I always find myself captivated by the discussion - plus they really help the treadmill time fly by.
Here are just a few of my favorites:
Okay, and I probably should mention the one May and I were on earlier this year re: Parenting fears.
There are many more topics that span the various stages of parenting and child development. I encourage you to check out their catalog of GEMS podcasts from 2010 here.
I'm sure you'll find several topics that resonate with you too.
Happy 1st Anniversary Good Enough Moms!
