5. Parenting Podcast

Join Ali, Julie and other Wonders & Worries professionals as they discuss common parenting issues that arise when a parent within the household is enduring an illness.  Each episode is about 20-30 minutes and addresses a specific area of concern for parents related to communication with their children, feelings/emotional regulation, as well as coping and resiliency.  This podcast is beneficial for ALL parents and is especially helpful for parents experiencing an illness by providing brief bits of education in a small time-frame, specific to their needs.  New episodes are posted every 6-8 weeks.  Listen to an episode now or subscribe to our RSS feed on any one of the major online podcasting platforms.
