This week, I’m starting a new series showcasing some of my favorite parenting resources. On Mondays for the rest of September I’m going to share with you some resources I’ve come to rely on and love. To get things started, today I am sharing my favorite podcasts.
I enjoy podcasts because I can listen while my hands are free to do something else. As any parent can tell you, there is always something that needs doing.
I love that I can listen to a podcast and feed my brain while I’m doing the more mundane tasks like washing dishes, cleaning the house, folding laundry. Knitting while listening to podcasts or audio books is also one of my favorite ways to relax.
You might not know that you don’t have to have an iPod or other mp3 player to listen to podcasts. Many podcasters have the shows embedded into their webpages so you can listen directly at their website.
You can also download podcasts to your computer and listen via iTunes or another media player.
My Favorite Parenting Podcasts
One of the first parenting podcasts I discovered, Mighty Mommy is part of the Quick and Dirty Tips network. Cherylyn Feierbend is the host of this series. These podcasts keep their promise and are indeed quick – less than five minutes each. I appreciate that they get straight to the point. Perfect for a busy parent!
