The Impactful Parent

The Impactful Parenting Podcast gives useful tips, advice, and resources to parents of school-aged children. Why? Because parenting is difficult and you don’t need to do it alone. I believe that parents need other parents. School-aged children bring different challenges to parenting than the toddler years and babies. Then right when you got things figured out, the kids become teenagers, and now the game changes again. The more support you have and the more help you can get- it will make your journey easier.

The minute we find out we are pregnant, we suddenly dream of walks in the park, weddings, and long hugs from little arms. It doesn't take long for us to realize that parenting is much more difficult than expected, and there will be times when parenting doesn't go as planned. For Jodi Schilling, her parenting expectations were quickly challenged at her first ultrasound. From there, parenting became a challenge and journey that would teach her many life lessons. This is one of my longest interviews (47 minutes in length) and one of my most inspiring! When I was editing my footage, I couldn't cut out anything that Jodi said, nor did I want to.
