When you follow someone online, you get a glimpse into their life. Suddenly instead of feeling alone, you feel validated in your decisions, and heck you might even learn something along the way!
Parenting podcasts offer this, and can help remind parents that whatever problem they’re facing, they’re not alone.
Listening into shows, or reading people’s stories online, can feel like you’re eavesdropping on their lives. However by being allowed to peak in, you suddenly realise that a lot things about parenting are universal.
We all do a lot of the things the same.
We also do a lot of things differently, and it’s always fascinating to hear how others live their lives, and parent their children.
Whether you agree or disagree, it still makes for a great conversation.
The Parenting View is one of these shows that has just started up, promising to get conversations going about all things parenting.
Maria Foy, creator and host of the podcast The Parenting View, says “A lot of parents can get disillusioned by what they see online, but with a show like this, suddenly you’re exposed to a conversation that is unfiltered.” She also goes on to say “No two people parent the same, and everybody’s life experiences are different – which makes these kind of conversations fascinating. When we stop and listen to others, we learn; and knowledge is power. We can choose what to do with that information however we want“.
As mentioned in our “Podcasts Are The New Black” post, you can listen to a podcast anywhere, anytime. You do not have to sit down in front of a computer to do it.
So you could be doing your laundry, going for a walk, or feeding your baby and still be able to tune in and feel less alone as a parent.
You can check it out, and subscribe to it, on iTunes or on Spotify (coming soon).
